Comparison of AdaBoost and Support Vector Machines for Detecting Alzheimer's Disease Through Automated Hippocampal Segmentation
Abstract— We compared four automated methods for hippocampal segmentation using different machine learning algorithms (1) hierarchical AdaBoost, (2) Support Vector Machines (SVM) with manual feature selection, (3) hierarchical SVM with automated feature selection (Ada-SVM), and (4) a publicly available brain segmentation package (FreeSurfer). We trained our approaches using T1-weighted brain MRI’s from 30 subjects (10 normal elderly, 10 mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and 10 Alzheimer’s disease (AD)), and tested on an independent set of 40 subjects (20 normal, 20 AD). Manually segmented gold standard hippocampal tracings were available for all subjects (training and testing). We assessed each approach’s accuracy relative to manual segmentations, and its power to map AD effects. We then converted the segmentations into parametric surfaces to map disease effects on anatomy. After surface reconstruction, we computed significance maps, and overall corrected p-values, for the 3D p...
