Automatic Detection of Cerebral Microbleed in SWI Using Radon Transform

Abstract : Since presence and number of cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) have come to attention as a potential biomarker, an automated scheme to improve visualization is required. In this work, a new approach of CMB identification in SWIs is presented and compared to visual rating. The method relies on two main steps: a 3D anisotropic multi-scale approach that extracts size and centre of all potential CMBs within the image, and feature extraction using the Radon Transform for final classification using a random forest classifier. The novelty of the technique consists in combining Radon transform and multiscale analysis to obtain robust feature descriptors.
