Orthogonal subspace projection (OSP) approach has shown success in hyperspectral image classification. Recently, the feasibility of applying OSP to multispectral image classification was also demonstrated via SPOT (Satellite Pour l'Observation de la Terra) and Landsat (Land Satellite) images. Since an MR (magnetic resonance) image sequence is also acquired by multiple spectral channels (bands), this paper presents a new application of OSP in MR image classification. The idea is to model an MR image pixel in the sequence as a linear mixture of substances (such as white matter, gray matter, cerebral spinal fluid) of interest from which each of these substances can be classified by a specific subspace projection operator followed by a desired matched filter. The experimental results show that OSP provides a promising alternative to existing MR image classification techniques.
