Fundamentals of Texture Processing For Biomedical Image Analysis

Presented by Adrien Depeursinge, PhD, at MICCAI 2015 Tutorial on Biomedical Texture Analysis (BTA), Munich, Oct 5 2015.

Texture-based imaging biomarkers complement focal, invasive biopsy based biomarkers by providing information on tissue structure over broad regions, non-invasively, and repeatedly across multiple time points. Texture has been used to predict patient survival, tissue function, disease subtypes and genomics (imagenomics and radiogenomics). Nevertheless, several challenges remain, such as: the lack of an appropriate framework for multi-scale, multi-spectral analysis in 2D and 3D; localization uncertainty of texture operators; validation; and, translation to routine clinical applications.
