How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

We propose filtering the PET sinograms with a constraint curvature motion diffusion. The edge-stopping function is computed in terms of edge probability under the assumption of contamination by Poisson noise. We show that the Chi-square is the appropriate prior for finding the edge probability in the sinogram noise-free gradient. Since the sinogram...
Radiologists face difficulties when reading and interpreting Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images because of the high noise level in the raw-projection data (i.e. the sinogram). The later may lead to erroneous diagnoses. Aiming at finding a suitable denoising technique for PET images, in our first work, we investigated filtering the sinogram w...
Object based image analysis has gained on the traditional per-pixel multi-spectral based approaches. The main pitfall of using anisotropic diffusion for creating a multi scale representation of a remotely sensed image remains the computational burden. Producing the coarser scales in a multi scale representation or, diffusing spatially large images...
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is an important nuclear medicine imaging technique which enhances the effectiveness of diagnosing many diseases. The raw-projection data, i.e. the sinogram, from which the PET is reconstructed, contains a very high level of Poisson noise. The latter complicates the PET image’s interpretation which may lead to erro...
The high incidence of breast cancer in women has increased significantly in the recent years. The most familiar breast tumors types are mass and microcalcification. Mammograms—breast X-ray—are considered the most reliable method in early detection of breast cancer. Computer-aided diagnosis system can be very helpful for radiologist in detection and...
