2016 Entropy  
In this paper, we present a computerized method that processes an image and calculates a quantitative measurement considered as its entropy, suitable for the identification of abnormal uptake regions,  ...  Over 46 scintigraphies of 22 anonymous patients were tested; the procedure identified 96.7% of regions of abnormal uptake and it showed a low overall false negative rate of 3.3%.  ...  Acknowledgments: The use of the scintigraphies for this study was approved by the La Fe Hospital's Biomedical Research Ethics Committee.  ...
