Abstract Malformations of the cerebral cortex are recognized as a common cause of developmental delay, neurological deficits, mental retardation and epilepsy. Currently, the diagnosis of cerebral cortical malformations is based on a subjective interpretation of neuroimaging characteristics of the cerebral gray matter and underlying white matter. There is no automated system for aiding the observer in making the diagnosis of a cortical malformation. In this paper a fuzzy rule-based system is proposed as a solution for this problem.
Due to this property, fuzzy logic principles have been successfully applied to a wide range of problems in different domains for which uncertainty and vagueness emerge in varying ways. Fuzzy modelling [ 25 ], fuzzy control [ 12 ] and fuzzy classification [ 11 ] are the most common applications. Since its inception fuzzy set theory has been regarded as a formalism suitable to deal with the imprecision intrinsic to many medical problems.
For example, FRBSs have been applied in the classification of benign and malignant nuclei in cytological images [ 2 , 13 ], diagnosis of myocardial infarction [ 14 ], medical data analysis [ 32 ], fuzzy control of anaesthesia [ 21 ], and others.
The impact fuzzy set theory has had on the work in medical AI is investigated in [ 1 , 19 , 30 ]. Fuzzy sets have been recognized most for their ability to introduce notions of continuity into deductive thinking. Because it is continuous, the behavior of fuzzy systems is likely to be closer to medical reality than the behaviour of the classical systems. At the same time, fuzzy sets allow to use symbolic models. Fuzzy sets can bridge the gap between the discrete world of reasoning and the continuity of reality.
In [ 30 ] this appears to be the main reason why they are considered useful. The paper is organized as follows: description of the diagnostic problem, an introduction to the principles of fuzzy logic and FRBSs, description of the proposed system for helping with this medical diagnostic problem, implementation of the system, results of the evaluation of the system, and finally, our conclusions.
Problem description 2. Classification of the malformations of cortical development Although there is disagreement in the literature as regards the classification and nomenclature of malformations of the cerebral cortex [ 24 , 16 , 6 , 18 ], in this work we have followed the classification proposed by Barkovich et al [ 4 ]. In this scheme, abnormalities of cortical development are considered to have their onset during one of three fundamental embryologic events of cortical formation: Cellular proliferation in the germinal zones.
Migration of cells to developing cerebral cortex. Vertical and horizontal organization of cells within the cortex.
Therefore, malformations of the cortical development are mainly classified in the following three categories: Malformations due to an abnormal neuronal proliferation. Malformations due to an abnormal neuronal migration. Malformations due to an abnormal cortical organization.
Within each of these categories, hierarchical subsets of cortical malformations are recognized. As illustrated by category 3, malformations of cortical organization, there are two main subsets: generalized malformations and focal or multifocal malformations table 1.
Within each subset are a number of specific pathologic entities i.
Table 1 Malformations due to an abnormal cortical organization extracted from [ 4 ]. There exists a mismatch between humans and machines: humans reason in uncertain, imprecise, fuzzy ways while machines and the computers that run them are based on binary reasoning.
Fuzzy logic is a way to make machines more intelligent enabling them to reason in a fuzzy manner like humans. Fuzzy logic, proposed by Lotfy Zadeh in , emerged as a tool to deal with uncertain, imprecise, or qualitative decision-making problems. Controllers that combine intelligent and conventional techniques are commonly used in the intelligent control of complex dynamic systems. Therefore, embedded fuzzy controllers automate what has traditionally been a human control activity.
Three methods may be used in the description of a system  : 1. Graphically the method is equivalent to plotting some discrete points of the input-output curve, using the horizontal axis for input and the vertical axis for output.
By understanding such input-output reaction, one can design a controller.
The disadvantages are several: the process equipment may not be available for experimentation, the procedure would usually be very costly, and for a large number of input values it is impractical to measure the output and interpolation between measured outputs would be required. One must also be careful to determine the expected ranges of inputs and outputs to make sure that they fall within the range of the measuring instruments available.
Laplace transforms and z-transforms are respectively used. In order to make mathematical models simple enough, certain assumptions are made, one of which is that the process is linear, that is, its output is proportional to the input.
Linear techniques are valuable because they provide good insight. Besides, there exists no general theory for the analytic solution of nonlinear differential equations and consequently no comprehensive analysis tools for nonlinear dynamic systems.
Another assumption is that the process parameters do not change in time that is, the system is time-invariant despite system component deterioration and environmental changes.
Rules associate conclusions with conditions. The advantages of the heuristic method are: 1 It is not required the assumption of linearity and, 2 heuristic rules can be integrated to the control strategies of human operators. Fuzzy control strategies come from experience and experiments rather than from mathematical models and, therefore, linguistic implementations are much faster accomplished. Fuzzy control strategies involve a large number of inputs, most of which are relevant only for some special conditions.
Such inputs are activated only when the related condition prevails.
In this way, little additional computational overhead is required for adding extra rules. As a result, the rule base structure remains understandable, leading to efficient coding and system documentation. Reasoning can be expressed by a logical inference, or by the evaluation of inputs in order to draw a conclusion. Where A, B and C are linguistic variables.
In order to convert a linguistic term into a computational framework one needs to use the fundamentals of set theory. The universe of discourse is the space where the fuzzy variables are defined. The membership function gives the grade, or degree, of membership within the set, of any element of the universe of discourse. The membership function maps the elements of the universe onto numerical values in the interval [0, 1].
A membership function value of zero implies that the corresponding element is definitely not an element of the fuzzy set, while a value of unity means that the element fully belongs to the set.
A grade of membership in between corresponds to the fuzzy membership to set. In crisp set theory, if someone is taller than 1.
However, such sharp change from 1. On the 2 other hand, those who drive slower do not belong to the set A. The sharp transition between membership and non-membership would be realistic? Should there be a traffic summons issued to drivers who are caught at Or at Therefore, in practical situations there is always a natural fuzzification when someone analysis statements and a smooth membership curve usually better describes the grade that an element belongs to a set.
Many types of curves can be used, but triangular or trapezoidal shaped membership functions are the most common because they are easier to represent in embedded controllers. Fig 1 shows a system of fuzzy sets for an input with trapezoidal and triangular membership functions. Each fuzzy set spans a region of input or output value graphed with the membership. Any particular input is interpreted from this fuzzy set and a degree of membership is interpreted.
The membership functions should overlap to allow smooth mapping of the system. The process of fuzzification allows the system inputs and outputs to be expressed in linguistic terms so that rules can be applied in a simple manner to express a complex system.
