Title: Classification of trabecular structure in magnetic resonance images based on morphological granulometries.
Author: Chen, Yidong; Dougherty, Edward; Totterman, Saara; Hornak, Joseph
Abstract: A new method of detecting structured changes in trabecular bone, such as those associated with osteoporosis, was evaluated on magnetic resonance images of the wrist. The method was based on gray-scale morphological granulometries which classify image texture by iteratively filtering an image and measuring the rate of change of structural diminution in a filtered-image sequence. A classification scheme capable of distinguishing structural changes in trabecular bone starting from normal trabeculae through sclerotic, cystic, and grossly porotic bone is presented. Results of the application of this technique to the evaluation of high resolution magnetic resonance images of the wrist are presented.
