Optimization of connected component labelling
The report details some modifications made to the ITK {em ConnectedComponentImageFilter} in an attempt to improve performance. Some interesting observations were made during this process. A new filter using a different algorithm to perform the [...]

Component tree: an efficient representation of grayscale connected components
Connected component is a well known and very useful notion in binary case. As often in mathematical morphology, this notion can be extended to the grayscale case, and allow to perform lot of the useful transforms based on binary connected components in the [...]

Component-based software for dynamic configuration and control of computer assisted intervention systems
No opinion
This paper presents the rationale for the use of a component-based architecture for computer-assisted intervention (CAI) systems, including the ability to reuse components and to easily develop distributed systems. We introduce three additional capabilities, [...]

An ITK Class that Splits Multi-Component Images
This document describes the implementation of a class for the Insight Toolkit (ITK) that takes an image with multi-component pixels and outputs a scalar image for each component. This can be useful when examining images of vectors, tensors, etc. This filter [...]

Tophap by area
The tophat transform is a well know and widely used transform based of morphological opening or closing. It is often used to remove the background in an image, where the background is defined as the zones which do not fit in the user provided [...]

A role-based component architecture for computer assisted interventions: illustration for electromagnetic tracking and robotized motion rejection in flexible endoscopy
No opinion
This paper presents an original role-based software architecture facilitating the flexible composition, configuration and collaboration of separated components in the field of computer assisted interventions. Roles, which can be seen as methods dynamically [...]

The Surgical Assistant Workstation (SAW) in Minimally-Invasive Surgery and Microsurgery
No opinion
The Surgical Assistant Workstation (SAW) provides a modular, open-source software framework to support rapid prototyping of computer-assisted surgery systems, especially those that benefit from enhanced 3D visualization and user interaction. The framework [...]

Integration of a Robotic Endoscope Holder with the Surgical Assistant Workstation Software Framework
No opinion
We have integrated the Philips Research robot arm with the Johns Hopkins cisst library, an open-source platform for computer assisted surgical intervention, for assistance during minimally invasive cardiac surgery using image-based steering of an endoscope. [...]
