by Fu, Jiyuan, M.S., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2014, 88; 1582920
Abstract (Summary)

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture is a common trauma which frequently happens in overweight dogs. Veterinarians use MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) as the standard method to diagnose this disease. However MRI is expensive and time-consuming. Therefore, it is necessary to find an alternative diagnostic method. In this research, thermographic images are utilized as a prescreening tools for the detection of ACL rupture disease. Meanwhile, a quantitative comparison is made of new feature vectors based on Gabor filters with different frequencies and orientations.
