20130208967 | Probability Density Function Estimation - A PDF estimator for determining a probability that a detected object is a specific type of object is provided. Training data from a known set is used to functionally describe the relevant neighborhood for specific representation points. The neighborhood is selected based on the measured features of the object to be classified and weights are calculated to be applied to the representation points. A probability is determined based upon the stored training data, the measured features of the object to be classified, and the weights. | 08-15-2013 |

20130208956 | Spiculated Malignant Mass Detection and Classification in Radiographic Image - An image analysis embodiment comprises generating a bulge mask from a digital image, the bulge mask comprising potential convergence hubs for spiculated anomalies, detecting ridges in the digital image to generate a detected ridges map, projecting the detected ridges map onto a set of direction maps having different directional vectors to generate a set of ridge direction) projection maps, determining wedge features for the potential convergence hubs from the set of ridge direction projection maps, selecting ridge convergence hubs from the potential convergence hubs having strongest wedge features, extracting classification features for each of the selected ridge convergence hubs, and classifying the selected ridge convergence hubs based on the extracted classification features. | 08-15-2013 |

20130202165 | Malignant Mass Detection and Classification in Radiographic Images - An image analysis embodiment comprises subsampling a digital image by a subsample factor related to a first anomaly size scale, thereby generating a subsampled image, smoothing the subsampled image to generate a smoothed image, determining a minimum negative second derivative for each pixel in the smoothed image, determining each pixel having a convex down curvature based on a negative minimum negative second derivative value for the respective pixel, joining each eight-neighbor connected pixels having convex down curvature to identify each initial anomaly area, selecting the initial anomaly areas having strongest convex down curvatures based on a respective maximum negative second derivative for each of the initial anomaly areas, extracting one or more classification features for each selected anomaly area, and classifying the selected anomaly areas based on the extracted one or more classification features. | 08-08-2013 |
