Abstract

Medical image analysis has become a topic under the spotlight in recent years. There is a significant progress in medical image research concerning the usage of machine learning. However, there are still numerous questions and problems awaiting answers and solutions, respectively. In the present study, comparison of three classification models is conducted using features extracted using local binary patterns, the histogram of gradients, and a pre-trained deep network. Three common image classification methods, including support vector machines, decision trees, and artificial neural networks are used to classify feature vectors obtained by different feature extractors. We use KIMIA Path960, a publicly available dataset of 960 histopathology images extracted from 20 different tissue scans to test the accuracy of classification and feature extractions models used in the study, specifically for the histopathology images. SVM achieves the highest accuracy of 90.52% using local binary patterns as features which surpasses the accuracy obtained by deep features, namely 81.14%.
