The radiomics package is a set of tools for computing texture matrices and features from images.

The release version of this package (April 2016, v0.1.2) is available from CRAN using:


Or you can install the development version of the package using:


Texture Matrices

In the package are functions for calculating four different types of matrices and associated feature sets used to quantify the texture of an image.

These matrices are the:

  • Grey Level Co-occurrence Matrix
  • Grey Level Run Length Matrix
  • Grey Level Size Zone Matrix
  • Multiple Grey Level Size Zone Matrix

Detailed usage directions for calculating features and matrices can be found in the package vignette (use browseVignettes(package = "radiomics"))

Using the Package

Building Texture Matrices

Texture matrices can be created from 2D images by using the abbreviated and lowercase matrix name as a function call:

tumor <- radiomics::tumor #2D MRI slice of a brain tumor

A matrix with the class of the texture matrix type is returned, as shown here using glcm(tumor, n_grey=4)

#> An object of class "glcm"
#>              1          2           3            4
#> 1 0.1617021277 0.03356974 0.001891253 0.0004728132
#> 2 0.0335697400 0.38345154 0.010638298 0.0014184397
#> 3 0.0018912530 0.01063830 0.301654846 0.0184397163
#> 4 0.0004728132 0.00141844 0.018439716 0.0203309693
class(glcm(tumor, n_grey=4))[1]
#> [1] "glcm"

Visualizing Texture Matrices

Each matrix type has an associated image function for visualization of the results:


The image functions make use of the viridis scale, as shown here using image(glcm(tumor, n_grey=64)):


Calculating Features

Each matrix type has an associated calc_features function, which returns an object of class data.frame with a single observation for each calculated feature. First order features can also be calculated on 2D matrices.
