Contourlet transform and support vector machines for image analysis and processing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this work, a method for image analysis and processing and its application in natural and real medical images is presented. The Contourlet Transform (CT) was used to extract statistical texture features from texture images and Support Vector Machines (SVMs) were utilized for the classification process. A variety of filter and parameter combinations were tested in the experimental procedure in order to assess the efficiency of the method. This image analysis and processing procedure was applied to natural images taken from the publicly available Vistex library, and to real thyroid ultrasound (US) images. The evaluation of experimental results demonstrate the CT’s potential in feature extraction and shows that CT based texture features can be successfully utilized for texture representation.
