Abstract

A novel texture feature based on isotropic Gaussian Markov random fields is proposed for diagnosis and quantification of emphysema and its subtypes. Spatially varying parameters of isotropic Gaussian Markov random fields are estimated and their local distributions constructed using normalized histograms are used as effective texture features. These features integrate the essence of both statistical and structural properties of the texture. Isotropic Gaussian Markov Random Field parameter estimation is computationally efficient than the methods using other MRF models and is suitable for classification of emphysema and its subtypes. Results show that the novel texture features can perform well in discriminating different lung tissues, giving comparative results with the current state of the art texture based emphysema quantification. Furthermore supervised lung parenchyma tissue segmentation is carried out and the effective pathology extents and successful tissue quantification are achieved.
