Multispectral texture characterization: application to computer aided diagnosis on prostatic tissue images

Abstract : Various approaches have been proposed in the literature for texture characterization of images. Some of them are based on statistical properties, others on fractal measures and some more on multi-resolution analysis. Basically, these approaches have been applied on mono-band images. However, most of them have been extended by including the additional information between spectral bands to deal with multi-band texture images. In this article, we investigate the problem of texture characterization for multi-band images. Therefore, we aim to add spectral information to classical texture analysis methods that only treat gray-level spatial variations. To achieve this goal, we propose a spatial and spectral gray level dependence method (SSGLDM) in order to extend the concept of gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) by assuming the presence of texture joint information between spectral bands. Thus, we propose new multi-dimensional functions for estimating the second-order joint conditional probability density of spectral vectors. Theses functions can be represented in structure form which can help us to compute the occurrences while keeping the corresponding components of spectral vectors. In addition, new texture features measurements related to (SSGLDM) which define the multi-spectral image properties are proposed. Extensive experiments have been carried out on 624 textured multi-spectral images for use in prostate cancer diagnosis and quantitative results showed the efficiency of this method compared to the GLCM. The results indicate a significant improvement in terms of global accuracy rate. Thus, the proposed approach can provide clinically useful information for discriminating pathological tissue from healthy tissue.
