Morphological Opening on a Graph
No opinion
This document presents an implementation of an algorithm to perform a morphological opening on a graph. The intent is to remove short branches in a graph while preserving the large scale structure. This implementation is based on the algorithm described in [...]

Closed Loop Simplification
No opinion
This document presents an implementation of an algorithm to find a low edge-count approximation of a complex, discrete, 2D closed contour. This implementation is based on the algorithm described in ``Using Aerial Lidar Data to Segment And Model Buildings'' [...]

Interactive Liver Tumor Segmentation Using Graph-cuts and Watershed
We present in this paper an application of minimal surfaces and Markov random fields to the segmentation of liver tumors. The originality of the work consists in applying these models to the region adjacency graph of a watershed transform. We detail [...]

Scene Graph: Visualization of Coordinate Systems in the Image Guided Surgical Toolkit
No opinion
In a surgical environment, there are many tools and objects (including the patient) being used. In a computer-aided surgery, the position of each of these tools in the operating room is very critical and generally will be tracked in their own coordinate [...]

Graph Cuts, <i>Caveat Utilitor</i>, and Euler's Bridges of Konigsberg
Graph-based algorithms have enjoyed renewed interest for solving computer vision problems. These algorithms have been the subject of intense interest and research. In order to maintain the ITK library au courant, we developed a framework for graph-based [...]

Automatized Evaluation of the Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction from Echocardiographic Images Using Graph Cut
No opinion
In this paper, we present a fast and interactive graph cut method for 3D segmentation of the endocardial wall of the left ventricle (LV) given 3D echocardiographic images. This is a challenging task due to the poor contrast and the low signal-to-noise ratio [...]

Implementation of graph-based interactive 3D vessel segmentation filter
This paper describes an ITK implementation of a 3D vascular segmentation filter using a graph-based energy minimization algorithm. The method first computes the shortest path between two user provided points in the vessel and then performs a graph min-cut [...]

Segmentation of Carotid Arteries By Graph-Cuts Using Centerline Models
No opinion
In this paper, we present a semi-automtic method for segmenting carotid arteries in contrast enhanced (CE)-CT angiography (CTA) scans. The segmentation algorithm extracts the lumen of carotid arteries between user specfied locations. Specifically, the [...]

Interactive Image Graph Cut Segmentation
No opinion
This document presents a system to "scribble" on an image to mark foreground and background pixels and then feed these pixels to a graph cuts segmentation technique. The interaction is done using the Visualization Toolkit and the processing is done using the [...]

Deformable Registration with Discontinuity Preservation using Multi-Scale MRF
No opinion
Deformable (2D or 3D) medical image registration is a challenging problem. Existing approaches assume that the underlying deformation is smooth. This smoothness assumption allows for solving the deformable registration at a coarse resolution and interpolate [...]

Nearly automatic vessels segmentation using graph-based energy minimization
No opinion
We present a nearly automatic tool for the accurate segmentation of vascular structures in volumetric CTA images. Its inputs are a start and an end seed points inside the vessel. The two-step graph-based energy minimization method starts by computing the [...]

Loopy Belief Propagation on MRFs in ITK
No opinion
This code provides a base implementation of Loopy Belief Propagation on MRFs in ITK. We use binary image denoising as an example problem to demonstrate this code. This document is intended only to describe the implementation, not the theory. A complete [...]

Point Set Processing for VTK - Outlier Removal, Curvature Estimation, Normal Estimation, Normal Orientation
This document presents a set of classes (vtkPointSetOutlierRemoval, vtkPointSetNormalEstimation, vtkPointSetNormalOrientation, vtkPointSetCurvatureEstimation, vtkEuclideanMinimumSpanningTree, and vtkRiemannianGraphFilter) to enable several basic operations on [...]
