Description

Computerized recognition and quantification of texture information has been an active research domain for the past 50 years, with some of the pioneering work still widely used today. Recently, the increasing ubiquity of imaging data has driven the need for powerful image analysis approaches to convert this data into knowledge. One of the most promising application domains is biomedical imaging, which is a key enabling technology for precision medicine (e.g., radiomics and digital histopathology) and biomedical discovery (e.g., microscopy). The colossal research efforts and progress made in the general domain of computer vision have led to extremely powerful data analysis systems. Biomedical imaging relies upon well-defined acquisition protocols to produce images. This is quite different from general photography. Consequently, the analysis of biomedical images requires a paradigm change to account for the quantitative nature of the imaging process. Texture analysis is a broadly applicable, powerful technology for quantitative analysis of biomedical images.

This book provides a thorough background on texture analysis for graduate students, and biomedical engineers from both industry and academia who have basic image processing knowledge. Medical doctors and biologists with no background in image processing will also find available methods and software tools for analyzing textures in medical images.

By bringing together experts in data science, medicine, and biology, we hope that this book will actively promote the translation of incredibly powerful data analysis methods into several breakthroughs in biomedical discovery and noninvasive precision medicine.

Key Features

  • Define biomedical texture precisely and describe how it is different from general texture information considered in computer vision
  • Define the general problem to translate 2D and 3D texture patterns from biomedical images to visually and biologically relevant measurements
  • Describe with intuitive concepts how the most popular biomedical texture analysis approaches (e.g., gray-level matrices, fractals, wavelets, deep convolutional neural networks) work, what they have in common, and how they are different
  • Identify the strengths, weaknesses, and current challenges of existing methods including both handcrafted and learned representations, as well as deep learning. The goal is to establish foundations for building the next generation of biomedical texture operators
  • Showcase applications where biomedical texture analysis has succeeded and failed
  • Provide details on existing, freely available texture analysis software. This will help experts in medicine or biology develop and test precise research hypothesis

About the Editor

Adrien Depeursinge

Adrien Depeursinge received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2003 and 2005, respectively, with a specialization in signal and image processing. From 2006 to 2010, he performed his Ph.D. thesis on medical image analysis at the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG). He then did a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University. Starting from 2014, he holds a joint position as professor at the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland, Sierre (HES-SO) and as research associate in the Biomedical Imaging Group at EPFL. Dr. Depeursinge was the recipient of the 2011 German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology Award in medical informatics for his Ph.D. thesis. His research interests include N-dimensional texture analysis with control of image scales and directions as well as clinical workflows of image-based computer-aided diagnosis systems.
