Texture is a combination of repeated patterns with regular/irregular frequency. It can only be visualized but hard to describe in words. Liver structure exhibit similar behavior, it has maximum disparity in intensity texture inside and along boundary which serves as a major problem in its segmentation and classification. Problem gets more complicated when one applies simple segmentation techniques without considering variation in intensity texture. The problem of representing liver texture is solved by encoding it in terms of certain parameters for texture analysis. Numerous textural analysis techniques have been devised for liver classification over the years some of which work equally work well for most of the imaging modalities. Here, we attempt to summarize the efficacy of textural analysis techniques devised for Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound and some other imaging modalities like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), in terms of well-known performance metrics.
