Grading of Liver Cirrhosis in Ultrasound Images Using Texture Analysis
Abstract: The process of liver cirrhosis may vary according to its courses and its severity, this study was aimed to characterize and to classify the liver cirrhosis into different liver grades using ultrasound scanning techniques in which the images treated as IDL variables for purpose of tissue texture extraction and the variable was including the First Order Statistics measures (FOS). And liver cirrhosis firstly classified using US scanning and the assessment was carried out so four grads was estimated here from grade (0) up to grade (3) then using SW-LDA the classification reveals that 94.7 % of the original classes were correctly predicted by the classification function. Where the sensitivity was equal to 96.1 % and specificity of 90.6 %. A linear equation was extracted in order to calculate the liver grades simply using ultrasound machine.
