The purpose of this
study was to make an image processing marker using 3D SHINKEI based MR Neurography
images of brachial plexus to identify nerve conditions and establish the
condition for normalcy and abnormality by extracting the contrast property from
the second order gray level Co-occurrence Matrix. The images from fourteen
healthy volunteers and three patients were studied. The contrast in perpendicular
direction of nerve anatomy was twice as high as other contrasts among normal
subjects, while in patients, there was no such difference. Our ongoing work has
the potential to classify the severity of the detected nerve lesion.
