Abstract : Diagnostic classifications based on the estimation of norm deviations are based on homomorphic features between images and pathology. The measurement is the three dimensional mapping of a tracer distribution, which reflects regional myocardial blood flow. This measured distribution or image is compared to a normal distribution, derived from measurements in subjects from a population in which the myocardial perfusion is assumed to be normal. In addition to the normal (average) distribution, a measure of natural variation is made. Quantitative classification; homomorphism.
