Results

The National Library Of Medicine has developed a portable chest X-ray screening system to automatically detect lung abnormalities in countries where health resources are constrain. The system extracts texture and shape properties of lung regions from CXR images, and identifies abnormality using image processing and machine learning algorithms. On typical CXR, bone structures overlap with lung tissue due to 2D projection of the chest. Ribcage causes cross-hatching pattern in the lung region, which misleads texture analysis. The straightforward solution to this problem would be to extract textures only from inter-costal regions. This strategy indeed increases accuracy of normal / abnormal lung classification. Another way to improve texture analysis is to suppress rib-bone by reducing intensities for rib regions, and to work on soft-tissue-like images. Soft-tissue-like images can be obtained by subtracting rib region from input X-ray. Automatic rib-bone extraction is not only useful for better texture analysis, but also useful for pediatric CXR screening where rib borders could be used to detect rib abnormalities, such as rickets or neurofibromatosis. Rib boundaries also need to be detected accurately in stereo radiography in order to reconstruct an accurate 3D rib-bone model. Rib-bone detection is challenging due to spurious boundaries caused by overlapping anatomical structures, multiplicative noise and sampling artifacts during acquisition, and deformation of tissues and anatomical shape variations caused by disease. Rib border contrast is generally poor / low because of similar intensity values at rib boundaries and nearby tissues. In addition to these challenges, rib bone appearance varies between patients due to differences in bone mineral density, respiration, and body movement during X-ray capture. Fig 1 shows typical rib shape variance across patients, as well as spurious boundaries. It has been shown in numerous studies that prior-information-base segmentation methods are more accurate than those without prior information. One way to incorporate prior knowledge is to use prototype atlas. Herein, we investigate the use of atlases for automate rib-bone extraction from CXRs. An illustrative flowchart of the proposed approach is shown in Figure 2. Atlas, in the context of this work, is defined as a set of model X-ray images and their corresponding rib-bone boundaries. Models are constructed via three methods: i X-ray image with manually delineate rib-bone boundaries fig 3.; Ii simulate X-ray and rib-bone model image generated from computed Tomography CT scan fig 3. B; and iii CXRs obtained from dual energy scanner fig 3. C. Atlas is register to patient X-ray, yielding transformation for each pixel, which allows the corresponding atlas rib mask to be transformed and treated as segmentation for the rib-bone of the patient. We summarize previous studies and our contribution in Section 2. Datasets used in our study are listed in Section 3. 1 methodology is described in Section 3. 2, which includes atlas construction, model Selection, and atlas registration. We provide experimental results in Section 4. We discuss and conclude study in Section 5.

Deep learning algorithms

Recent advances in AI research have given rise to new, non-deterministic, deep learning algorithms that do not require explicit feature definition, representing a fundamentally different paradigm in machine learning 111-113. Underlying methods of deep learning have existed for decades. However, only in recent years have sufficient data and computational power become available. Without explicit feature predefinition or selection, these algorithms learn directly by navigating data space, giving them superior problem-solving capabilities. While various Deep learning architectures have been explored to address different tasks, convolutional neural networks are the most prevalent Deep learning architecture typologies in medical imaging today 14. Typical CNN comprise series of layers that successively map image inputs to desired end points while learning increasingly higher-level imaging features. Starting from the input image, hidden layers within CNNs usually include a series of convolution and pooling operations extracting feature maps and performing feature aggregation, respectively. These hidden layers are then followed by fully connected layers providing high-level reasoning before output layer produce predictions. CNNs are often trained end-to-end with labelled Data For supervised learning. Other architectures, such as Deep autoencoders 96 and generative adversarial networks 95, are more suited for unsupervised learning tasks on unlabelled data. Transfer learning, or using pre-trained networks on other data sets, is often utilized when dealing with scarce Data 114.

Non-radiology-based

Before the introduction and routine use of automatic Film Processing in Radiology and Medical Imaging, Medical X-ray films had to be hand process. The first prototype automatic X-ray Film processor was introduced in 1942. The first commercially available model could process 120 films per hour by using special film hangers, and the total time for processing one film was approximately 40 minutes. A significant improvement in automatic X-ray Film Processing was made in 1956 when the first roller transport processor for Processing Medical radiographs was introduce. This processor produces processed radiographs in approximately 6 minutes and accommodates all Medical X-ray films designed for exposure with intensifying screens. In 1965, 90-second rapid Processing was introduce. This advancement tailors new chemistry and new emulsions, and increased development temperature to 95 degrees F. In 1987, automatic film processor was introduced which has a processing cycle of approximately 45 seconds: This processor requires special films. In 1990, automatic film processor with an approximate 30-second processing cycle was introduce: This processor also requires special films and chemicals. The choice of Screen-Film combination, combined with Film-Processing conditions, substantially affects radiographic image quality and radiation dose. Film type, processing conditions, fog level, and optical density level affect film contrast. Film contrast characteristics determine how xray intensity pattern will be related to optical density pattern in radiograph. Light diffusion, causes blurring. Factors involved include: type of Screen, and Screen-Film contact. Type Of Screen, speed of Screen-Film Processing system, Film granularity, Screen uniformity, and film contrast affect radiographic noise. Screen type, film type, processing conditions, and optical density level affect radiation dose. Results Of Nationwide Evaluation Of X-ray Trends surveys and Mammography Quality Standards Act inspections Quality Of Film Processing has improved significantly over the past few decades because of ongoing educational efforts, laws, and regulation. This chapter focuses on technical measures of performance relating to Film Processing, such as processing speed, darkroom fog levels, and radiation dose: and how these measures of performance vary in different clinical environments. These environments include US Mammography facilities before and after passage of the federal Mammography Quality Standards Act Of 1992, Mammography in Canada: facilities conducting chest radiography, lumbo sacral spine radiography, hospitals, private offices, and dental facilities. The American College Of Radiology introduced their first Imaging modality-specific Accreditation Program in 1987: Mammography Accreditation Program. The primary goal of this Program was to improve early diagnosis of breast cancer by setting standards for performance of Mammography and granting Accreditation to those facilities that could demonstrate that they meet these high standards. These standards were established by practicing radiologists and medical physicists who were experts in Mammography. Facilities submit Quality Control data, phantom images, dosimetry measurements and specific examples of their best clinical images for review by expert panels. The Mammography Accreditation Program became the model for five additional ACR Imaging Accreditation programs that have evolved since 1995.

AI in medical imaging

In the last few years, artificial intelligence has been rapidly expanding and permeating both industry and academia. Many applications such as object classification, natural language processing, and speech recognition, which until recently seemed to be many years away from being able to achieve human levels of performance, have suddenly become viable. 1-3 Every week, there is a news story about AI systems that have surpassed humans at various tasks ranging from playing board games 4 to flying autonomous drones. 5 One report shows that revenues from AI will increase by around 55 % annually in the 2016–2020 time period, from roughly 8 billion to 47 billion. 6 Together with breakthroughs in other areas such as biotechnology and nanotechnology, advances in AI are leading to what the World Economic Forum refers to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. 7 disruptive changes associated with AI and automation are already being seriously discussed among economists and other experts as both have potential to positively improve our everyday lives, For example, by reducing healthcare costs, as well as to negatively affect society, For example, by causing large‐scale unemployment and rising income inequality 8 9. Advances in AI discussed above have been almost entirely based on groundbreaking performance of systems that are based on deep learning. We now use DL‐based Systems on a daily basis when we use search engines to find images on the Web or talk to digital assistants on smart phones and home entertainment systems. Give its widespread success in various computer vision applications, DL is now poised to dominate medical image analysis and has already transformed the field in terms of performance levels that have been achieved across various tasks as well as its application areas. Deep learning is a subfield of machine learning, which in turn is a field within AI. In general, DL consists of massive multilayer networks of artificial neurons that can automatically discover useful features, that is, representations of input data needed for tasks such as detection and classification, giving large amounts of unlabeled or labelled data. 11 12 traditional applications of machine learning Using techniques such as support vector machines or random forests take as input handcraft features, which are often developed with reliance on domain expertise, For each separate application such as object classification or speech recognition. In Imaging, handcraft features are extracted from image input data and reduce dimensionality by summarizing input into what is deemed to be the most relevant information that helps with distinguishing one class of input data from another. Using image pixels as input, image data can be flattened into highdimensional vector; For example, in mammographic mass classification, 500 500 pixel region of interest will result in vector with 250 000 elements.

As most interpretive errors in Radiology are perceptual in nature, understanding the path to radiologic expertise during Image Analysis is essential to educating future generations of radiologists. We review perceptual tasks and challenges in radiologic diagnosis, discuss models of radiologic Image perception, consider the application of perceptual learning methods in Medical training, and suggest a new approach to understanding perceptional expertise. Specific principled enhancements to educational practices in Radiology promise to deepen perceptual expertise among radiologists with the goal of improving training and reducing medical error.Ss


Introduction

X-ray computer tomography has seen a period of rapid growth over the last 15 years with considerable improvements in spatial resolution and image reconstruction times, such that it is now a commonly available tool within materials labs. Indeed, two excellent reviews have been published in IMR on topic 1 2 together with a number of books. 3-5 Initially, it was used predominantly as a means of acquiring 3D images from which diagnoses could be made based on visual judgement. More recently, there has been increasing move towards extracting key material science parameters from these images, through quantitative analysis. This has radically improved the level of information that can be gleaned from 3D imaging. In some cases, this is focus on quantitative characterisation of microstructure from a single 3D volume. In other cases, comparisons are made between successive 3D images in order to quantify structural evolution in materials science and to support micromechanics experiments and modelling. This review will attempt to outline major strands of quantitative analysis that are beginning to emerge for both these aspects. The first part of this review examines recent imaging advances that, we believe, have significantly increased the power of methods for quantifying evolution of materials, many of which have not received much attention to date. For example, it is now feasible to achieve spatial resolutions below 100 nm or, largely due to advances in synchrotron X-ray tomography, to acquire thousands of projections sufficiently quickly to obtain many 3D images per second. Further, one can obtain high resolution images from specific regions of interest, even from within large objects by local tomography. It is also possible to go beyond attenuation imaging, for example to reveal crystallographic orientation in 3D, thanks to methods such as 3D X-ray diffraction microscopy and diffraction contrast tomography, or to image spatial variations in chemistry by X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure imaging 6 or colour imaging. 7 review then focus on static analysis of 3D volumes as basis for quantitative characterisation of many aspects of materials microstructure using illustrative examples from literature. In such cases, it is important to identify the added value of 3D images over conventional quantitative metallography based on 2D sections. Good examples where 3D images are invaluable include cases where samples are too fragile to be section, or too valuable, or where 2D analysis is inadequate, for example for quantification of connectivity and / or tortuosity of different phases in material. Increasingly, X-ray tomography is being used to follow the evolution of microstructure under control environmental conditions through collection of time lapse sequences to create 3D movies, technique sometimes called 4D imaging. Here possibilities for quantification expand beyond microstructural quantification into dynamic quantities such as flow, deformation mapping and damage accumulation. Again, the review will focus on those studies where this has been used to obtain quantitative information, for example to map displacements or strain fields induced by loading.


Quantifying 3D images

Another important category of materials particularly suited to image base modelling are composites. Here, 3D structure of reinforcement plays a first order role on properties, and direct meshing of tomograms can provide feast of information on how local and global properties relate to microstructure. Work has been carried out on metal matrix composites 415-417 and fibre composites. 418-421 For example, Fig. 32 shows typical results obtained using this method for woven C-C composite. The Figure illustrates how such calculation yields both local and global information. Finally, many bulk multiphase materials have also been analyse by CT image base Modelling. Asphalt has been treated in several studies, 422-424 mortar by FFT in Ref. 368, multiphase ceramics in Refs. 365 and 425 and metals in Refs 370 and 426-430. In recent study, Moulin et Al. 431 suggests physically based criterion for fracture of complex shape inclusions embed in plastically deforming matrix. To apply this criterion, it is necessary to relate stress concentration in inclusions with the size of volume over which this stress is reach. In Berre et Al., 432 local value of grey levels in reconstructed tomograms are used to measure local density in nuclear graphite and to generate a multiphase model. Density is then used to modulate Young's modulus and resistance of local Element and Finite Element calculation is performed to account for these fluctuations and calculate macroscopic behaviour for samples with different structures.
