Multiscale AM-FM analysis of pneumoconiosis x-ray images
This paper presents a computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) system for analyzing chest radiographs based on the International Labor Organization (ILO) standards. We introduce an amplitude-modulation frequency-modulation (AM-FM) based methodology by which a computer-based system will extract AM-FM features and detect those with suspected interstitial lung diseases. For classification, we use Partial Least Squares (PLS) using a low number of extracted factors (making the system robust). We consider several different AM-FM classifiers based on extracting features from individual scales as well as a final classifier that combines results from the individuals scales. We validate our methodology on 11 standard images graded according to the ILO standard. For several scales, as well as for the combined classifier that uses information from all scales, we get excellent classification results (area under the receiver
