Describes a tool for quantitatively discriminating between meningioma and astrocytoma tumors. One of the uses of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in clinical diagnosis is in-vivo discrimination between tumor and normal tissue and between tumor types in the brain. There is much interest in increasing the qualitative and quantitative information available from these images. This article presents a study that uses the inductive logic programming tool Progol on measurements of signal intensities in clinical scan images of 28 patients (18 with meningiomas and 10 with astrocytomas) to attempt to discover knowledge that quantitatively dissriminates between the two types of tumors.
