This study explores the applicability of the state of the art of deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) to the classification of CT brain images, aiming at bring images into clinical applications. Towards this end, three categories are clustered, which contains subjects’ data with either Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or lesion (e.g. tumour) or normal ageing. Specifically, due to the characteristics of CT brain images with larger thickness along depth (z) direction (~5mm), both 2D and 3D CNN are employed in this research. The fusion is therefore conducted based on both 2D CT images along axial direction and 3D segmented blocks with the accuracy rates are 88.8%, 76.7% and 95% for classes of AD, lesion and normal respectively, leading to an average of 86.8%.
