Year Award Started: 2016

Texture analysis is the use of pixel mapping techniques to measure signal homogeneity and heterogeneity within an image. It has been in use for photographic analysis for over 40 years, however it is only in the last 10 years that it has started to be used in medical analysis, most notibly in cancer images. A recent in house proof of concept study has shown that texture analysis may add valuable information to cardiac assessments. Thus the aim of this study is to determine the effects of contrast, and MRI magnet on texture analysis measures as well as determining its reproducibility.
