We have developed an image processing concept, Imiomics
(imaging omics), a set of methods, including image
registration, that allow statistical and holistic
analysis of whole-body image data and non-imaging data.
The image registration gives point-to-point
correspondences between images allowing whole-body
comparisons of image intensity values and morphology.
The purpose of this work was to present Imiomics and
initial examples of cross sectional interaction between
MRI (fat content and local volume) and non-imaging data
(anthropometrical and body fat measurements) where there
is information on expected associations. We conclude
that Imiomics can be used for cross-sectional anomaly
detection, associations and group comparisons.
