Title: “Designing, Developing and Evaluating Mobile and Social Technology to Improve Sleep Quality“. Title:   “Brain Tumour Grading in Different MRI Protocols using SVM on Statistical Features

Abstract: Abstract:  Brain tumours are caused by abnormal and uncontrolled growing of the cells inside the brain or spinal canal. Regarding to the World Health Organization (WHO) grading system, the tumours are graded from I to IV, corresponding to least advanced to the most advanced diseases, respectively. In our work a feasibility study of brain MRI dataset classification, using ROIs which have been segmented either manually or through a superpixel based method in conjunction with statistical pattern recognition methods is performed. The aim is classifying tumour grades II, III and IV using different MRI acquisition protocols i.e. FLAIR, and T2. We found by using the Leave-One-Out method that the combination of the features from the 1st and 2nd order statistics, achieved high classification accuracy in pair-wise grading comparisons.
  • Then our usual catch-up agenda, including: Prepare for the March CRDB, PG Conference, plans for Showcase,….etc.
