The research work reported in this paper is concerned with the use of higher order spectral estimation techniques as a means to deriving the parameters of 2D autoregressive (AR) models. Image analysis is examined from a higher order statistical perspective and in the context of noise. The objective is to develop analysis techniques through which robust autoregressive parameter estimation is accomplished. The approach taken involves the use of 2D AR models derive from third order cumulants. The directionality of the cumulant space influences the AR parameter estimation in a decisive manner. The specific application of the developed methods is in mammography, an area in which it is very difficult to discern the appropriate features. The results show significant discriminating gains through such techniques.
