  • Quantitative characterization and neural network-based evaluation of colonoscopic images

    Extracting features from the colonoscopic images is essential for getting the quantitative parameters, which characterizes the properties of the colon. The features are employed in the computer-assisted diagnosis of colonoscopic images to assist the physician in detecting the colon status. Present methods mostly use manual approaches. A novel scheme is developed to extract new texture-based quantitative features from the texture spectra in the chromatic and achromatic domains of colonoscopic images. The texture spectra are obtained from the texture unit numbers, which contain local and global texture information of the image. These features are evaluated using supervisory Backpropagation Neural Network (BPNN) with various training algorithms, viz., resilient propagation (RPROP), scaled conjugate gradient (SCG), and Marquardt algorithms. The evaluation is based on training time, training epoch, and accuracy on classifying the colon status. The preliminary results obtained by the proposed approach support the feasibility of the technique.

  • Automatic colon polyp detection using Convolutional encoder-decoder model

    Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths, estimated 696 thousand worldwide. Recent years have seen an increase of deep learning techniques and algorithms being used to detect colon polyps. In this work we address colon polyp detection using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) combined with Autoencoders. We use 3 publicly available databases namely: CVC-ColonDB, CVC- ClinicDB and ETIS-LaribPolypDB, to train the model. The results obtained in terms of accuracy are: 0.937, 0.951, 0.967 for the above-mentioned databases respectively. Due to the nature of the colon polyps, diverse shapes and characteristics, there is still place for improvements.

  • Polyp detection in CT colonography based on shape characteristics and Kullback-Leibler divergence

    As an alternative procedure to the current methods which consider only the mean values of shape features to globally characterize a candidate shape polyps, probability density functions (PDFs) of some feature variables constructed based on Gaussian and mean curvatures are used to characterize the global shape of a candidate lesion. The decision on whether or not this candidate lesion is a polyp is made by comparing the density functions of the considered shape feature variables to reference PDFs of the same variables obtained from a pre- constructed polyp/non polyp data base. The Kullback- Leibler divergence is used as a dissimilarity measure to compare these PDFs and make a decision based on closeness. Experiments carried out on real data are used to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method in comparison to existing ones.

  • Automated diagnosis for segmentation of colonoscopic images using chromatic features

    Development of a computer-aided scheme will assist the physician by detecting abnormalities of the colon by characterizing features of the segmented colonoscopic images. A new algorithm for segmenting the colonoscopic images based on chromatic features for computer-assisted diagnosis has been developed. The novel method exploits the local homogeneity index (/spl lambda/) definition of the pixels in a given neighborhood of the image. It is realized in two stages. Initially, segmentation is performed using /spl lambda//sub I/ in the intensity domain. A novel modified peak-finding algorithm is employed to segment the image from the corresponding histogram. In the second stage, the regions obtained in the first stage are divided into sub-regions based on /spl lambda//sub H/ in the hue domain. ne over- segmentation problem is alleviated by merging the region using color difference measures. The preliminary results support the feasibility of the proposed approach. The advantages include the analysis of both local and global information by using the /spl lambda/ histogram.

  • Gaussian curvature flowmodel for colonic polyp detection in CT colonography

    In this paper, we propose a novel anisotropic 3D surface evolution model for detecting protrusion shape based colonic polyp on the curved surface. The important feature of the proposed model is that it can detect protrusions with both convex and concave shapes. Protrusion shapes are defined as the extension beyond the usual limits or above a plane surface. Based on Gaussian and mean curvature flows, the approach works by locally deforming the convex or concave surface until the second principal curvature goes to zero. The diffusion directions are changed to prevent convex surfaces from converting into concave shapes, and vice versa. The deformation field quantitatively measures the amount of protrudeness. The proposed method has been evaluated by using synthetic phantoms and real colon datasets.

  • Polyp Detection in Colonoscopy Video using Elliptical Shape Feature

    Early detection of polyps and cancers is one of the most important goals of colonoscopy. Computer-based analysis of video files using texture features, as has been proposed for polyps of the stomach and colon, has two major limitations: this method uses a fixed size analysis window and relies heavily on a training set of images for accuracy. To overcome these limitations, we propose a new technique focusing on shape instead of texture in this paper. The proposed polyp region detection method is based on the elliptical shape that is common for nearly all small colon polyps.

  • Lines of Curvature for Polyp Detection in Virtual Colonoscopy

    Computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) is a helpful addition to laborious visual inspection for preselection of suspected colonic polyps in virtual colonoscopy. Most of the previous work on automatic polyp detection makes use of indicators based on the scalar curvature of the colon wall and can result in many false-positive detections. Our work tries to reduce the number of false-positive detections in the preselection of polyp candidates. Polyp surface shape can be characterized and visualized using lines of curvature. In this paper, we describe techniques for generating and rendering lines of curvature on surfaces and we show that these lines can be used as part of a polyp detection approach. We have adapted existing approaches on explicit triangular surface meshes, and developed a new algorithm on implicit surfaces embedded in 3D volume data. The visualization of shaded colonic surfaces can be enhanced by rendering the derived lines of curvature on these surfaces. Features strongly correlated with true-positive detections were calculated on lines of curvature and used for the polyp candidate selection. We studied the performance of these features on 5 data sets that included 331 pre-detected candidates, of which 50 sites were true polyps. The winding angle had a significant discriminating power for true-positive detections, which was demonstrated by a Wilcoxon rank sum test with p<0.001. The median winding angle and inter-quartile range (IQR) for true polyps were 7.817 and 6.770-9.288 compared to 2.954 and 1.995-3.749 for false-positive detections

  • Virtual dissection of the colon based on helical CT data-can it be done?

    Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer; and colonic polyps are known precursors of that particular cancer. Virtual dissection refers to a display technique for polyp detection based on helical CT data, where the colon is dissected and flattened as on the pathologist's table. The approach and image processing as well as the early experience are described in this paper.

  • Pit Pattern Classification of Zoom-Endoscopical Colon Images Using DCT and FFT

    This work presents a classification approach for images taken from magnifying colonoscopy. Classification is done according to the pit pattern scheme. Images are not classified directly in the proposed classifier. Instead, they are transformed to a frequency domain using discrete cosine or Fourier transformation. Feature selection is optimized using a genetic algorithm, the actual classification is done using standard methods from statistical pattern recognition (a Bayes normal classifier).

  • Accurate and fast 3D colon segmentation in CT colonography

    This paper introduces an adaptive level set method for 3D segmentation of colon tissue in CT colonography filled with air and opacified fluid. First, most of the opacified liquid is removed by a threshold value. The closed contours are propagated toward the desired 3D region boundaries through the iterative evolution of the adaptive level sets function. The proposed method has been tested on 22 real CT colonography datasets with various pathologies, and the segmentation accuracy has achieved 98.40%.
