The aim of this article was to determine the effect of principal component analysis on the results of classification of spongy tissue images. Four hundred computed tomography images of the spine (L1 vertebra) were used for the analyses. The images were from fifty healthy patients and fifty patients diagnosed with osteoporosis. The obtained tissue image samples with a size of 50x50 pixels were subjected to texture analysis. As a result, feature descriptors based on a grey level histogram,
... t matrix, RL matrix, event matrix, autoregressive model and wavelet transform were obtained. The results obtained were ranked in importance from the most important to the least important. The first fifty features from the ranking were used for further experiments. The data were subjected to the principal component analysis, which resulted in a set of six new features. Subsequently, both sets (50 and 6 traits) were classified using five different methods: naive Bayesian classifier, multilayer perceptrons, Hoeffding Tree, 1-Nearest Neighbour and Random Forest. The best results were obtained for data on which principal components analysis was performed and classified using 1-Nearest Neighbour. Such an algorithm of procedure allowed to obtain a high value of TPR and PPV parameters, equal to 97.5%. In the case of other classifiers, the use of principal component analysis worsened the results by an average of 2%.
