Abstract

We propose a novel pairwise distance measure between variable-sized sets of image keypoints for the purpose of large-scale medical image indexing. Our measure generalizes the Jaccard index to account for soft set equivalence (SSE) between set elements, via an adaptive kernel framework accounting for uncertainty in keypoint appearance and geometry. Novel kernels are proposed to quantify the variability of keypoint geometry in location and scale. Our distance measure may be estimated between image pairs in    operations via keypoint indexing. Experiments validate our method in predicting 509,545 pairwise relationships from T1-weighted MRI brain volumes of monozygotic and dizygotic twins, siblings and half-siblings sharing 100%-25% of their polymorphic genes. Soft set equivalence and keypoint geometry kernels outperform standard hard set equivalence (HSE) in predicting family relationships. High accuracy is achieved, with monozygotic twin identification near 100% and several cases of unknown family labels, due to errors in the genotyping process, are correctly paired with family members. Software is provided for efficient fine-grained curation of large, generic image datasets.

Large Scale Indexing of Generic Medical Image Data using Unbiased Shallow Keypoints and Deep CNN Features
We propose a unified appearance model accounting for traditional shallow (i.e. 3D SIFT keypoints) and deep image feature representations. A novel Bayesian model combines shallow and deep features based on an assumption of conditional independence.

Hubless keypoint-based 3D deformable groupwise registration
Algorithm for Fast Registration Of image Groups (FROG) can be applied to large 3D image groups. It extracts 3D SURF keypoints from images, computes matched pairs of keypoints and registers the group.

Multi-modal analysis of genetically-related subjects using SIFT descriptors in brain MRI
The proposed framework represents MRI scans as bags of SIFT features, and uses these features in a nearest-neighbor graph to measure subject similarity. Experiments using the T1/T2-weighted MRI and.diffusion MRI data of 861 Human Connectome Project subjects demonstrate

Random Forests on Distance Matrices for Imaging Genetics Studies
We propose a non-parametric regression methodology, Random Forests on Distance Matrices (RFDM), for detecting genetic variants associated to quantitative phenotypes. RFDM, which is an extension of decision forests, requires a distance matrix as response that encodes all pair-wise

Kernel Method for Detecting Higher Order Interactions in multi-view Data: An Application to Imaging, Genetics, and Epigenetics
We tested the interaction effect of multimodal datasets using a novel method called the kernel method for detecting higher order interactions among biologically relevant mulit-view data. The method was evaluated using data from the Mind Clinical Imaging Consortium (MCIC) including single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scans, and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) methylation data.

Data-driven Probabilistic Atlases Capture Whole-brain Individual Variation
Probabilistic atlases provide essential spatial contextual information for image interpretation, Bayesian modeling, and algorithmic processing. The data-driven framework clusters regions with similar features using a point distribution model to learn different anatomical phenotypes. The proposed framework achieves low computational cost since only one affine registration and Pearson correlation operation are required for a new subject.
