Keywords: search, localization, MRI, autocorrelation, convolutional neural networks, pathological structure.


The article reviews and suggests methods and models for searching the outlines of areas with a specific pathological structure on MRI images. To solve the problem of the localization of abnormal tissue formations on MRI images, spatial autocorrelation coefficients based on local and global Moran indices can be used. The use of convolutional neural networks has been proposed to search for contours of areas with a specific pathological structure on MRI images.
