Neighbor-Constrained Segmentation with 3D Deformable Models
A novel method for the segmentation of multiple objects from 3D medical images using inter-object constraints is presented. Our method is motivated by the observation that neighbor...

Tunnelling Descent: A New Algorithm for Active Contour Segmentation of Ultrasound Images
The presence of speckle in ultrasound images makes it hard to segment them using active contours. Speckle causes the energy function of the active contours to have many local minim...

Ideal-Observer Performance under Signal and Background Uncertainty
We use the performance of the Bayesian ideal observer as a figure of merit for hardware optimization because this observer makes optimal use of signal-detection information. Due t...

A New & Robust Information Theoretic Measure and Its Application to Image Alignment
In this paper we develop a novel measure of information in a random variable based on its cumulative distribution that we dub cumulative residual entropy (CRE). This measure parall...

Bayesian Multimodality Non-rigid Image Registration via Conditional Density Estimation
Abstract. We present a Bayesian multimodality non-rigid image registration method. Since the likelihood is unknown in the general multimodality setting, we use a density estimator ...
