Image texture

Differential response of the retinal neural code with respect to the sparseness of natural images

Biologically-inspired characterization of sparseness in natural images

Natural images follow statistics inherited by the structure of our physical (visual) environment. In particular, a prominent facet of this structure is that images can be described by a relatively sparse number of features. We designed a sparse …

Advances in Texture Analysis for Emphysema Classification

In recent years, with the advent of High-resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT), there has been an increased interest for diagnosing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), which is commonly presented as emphysema. Since low-attenuation areas in …
