Paper Abstract

This article introduces a novel adaptive frequency saliency model (AFSM) that selects relevant information by filtering an image with a set of band pass filters optimally placed in the frequency space using an auto- encoder CNN. The obtained images show a higher signal-to-noise ratio and therefore they improve a classifier performance. The proposed method is challenged by a classification task: prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to be labeled as cancerous or non-cancerous tissue. Evaluation in this case was carried out by training a convolutional neural network (CNN) with a prostate dataset but at the testing phase, the trained model is assessed with non-filtered and filtered images. The classifier tried with filtered images outperformed the results obtained with the non filtered ones (classification accuracy scores of 0.792± 0.016 and 0.776± 0.036 respectively), demonstrating better overall performance and the importance of using filtering processes.
