A computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system based on intensity-invariant magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features was proposed to grade gliomas for general application to various scanning systems and settings.

In total, 34 glioblastomas and 73 lower-grade gliomas comprised the image database to evaluate the proposed CAD system. For each case, the local texture on MR images was transformed into a local binary pattern (LBP) which was intensity-invariant. From the LBP, quantitative image features, including the histogram moment and textures, were extracted and combined in a logistic regression classifier to establish a malignancy prediction model. The performance was compared to conventional texture features to demonstrate the improvement.

The performance of the CAD system based on LBP features achieved an accuracy of 93% (100/107), a sensitivity of 97% (33/34), a negative predictive value of 99% (67/68), and an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (Az) of 0.94, which were significantly better than the conventional texture features: an accuracy of 84% (90/107), a sensitivity of 76% (26/34), a negative predictive value of 89% (64/72), and an Az of 0.89 with respective p values of 0.0303, 0.0122, 0.0201, and 0.0334.

More-robust texture features were extracted from MR images and combined into a significantly better CAD system for distinguishing glioblastomas from lower-grade gliomas. The proposed CAD system would be more practical in clinical use with various imaging systems and settings.
