We present an unsupervised feature dimension reduction method for the classification of magnetic resonance spectra. The technique preserves spectral information, important for disease profiling. We propose to use this technique as a preprocessing step for computationally demanding wrapper-based feature subset selection. We show that the classification accuracy on an independent test set can be sustained while achieving considerable feature reduction. Our method is applicable to other classification techniques, such as neural networks, support vector machines, etc. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
