We present new multidimensional Amplitude-Modulation Frequency-Modulation (AM-FM) methods for motion estimation. For a single AM-FM component we show that the optical flow constraint leads to separate equations for amplitude modulation (AM) and frequency modulation (FM). We compare our approach with phase-based estimation developed by Fleet and Jepson and also the original optical flow method by Horn and Schunck. An advantage of the proposed method is that it provides for dense estimates that remain accurate over the entire video. We also present preliminary results on atherosclerotic plaques videos where the AM method appears to work best. © 2007 IEEE.

Multiscale amplitude-modulation frequency-modulation (AMFM) texture analysis of multiple sclerosis in brain MRI images Loizou, Christos P.; Murray, V.; Pattichis, Marios S.; Seimenis, Ioannis; Pantzaris, Marios C.; Pattichis, Constantinos S. (2011)This study introduces the use of multiscale amplitude modulation-frequency modulation (AM-FM) texture analysis of multiple sclerosis (MS) using magnetic resonance (MR) images from brain. Clinically, there is interest in ...
Despeckle filtering for multiscale amplitude-modulation frequency-modulation (AM-FM) texture analysis of ultrasound images of the intima-media complex Loizou, Christos P.; Murray, V.; Pattichis, Marios S.; Pantzaris, Marios C.; Nicolaïdes, Andrew N.; Pattichis, Constantinos S. (2014)The intima-media thickness (IMT) of the common carotid artery (CCA) is widely used as an early indicator of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Typically, the IMT grows with age and this is used as a sign of increased risk of ...
