Fractal analysis for medical image classification and analysis was introduced in cite{Chen1989}. According to the authors, when viewed as an intensity surface, Mandelbrot\'s fractal theory provides an informative framework for characterizing such a surface. Using the fractional Brownian motion model, the authors provide an algorithm for converting a scalar image to a fractal dimension image for classification purposes or edge enhancement. This submission constitutes a report on the ITK implementation of this algorithm.
