User-Defined B-Spline Template-Snakes
We combine a new user initialization process with a B-spline snake to create a model with the properties of a deformable template. This `template' snake can be constrained by ...

Regularization of Diffusion Tensor Maps Using a Non-Gaussian Markov Random Field Approach
Abstract. In this paper we propose a novel non-Gaussian MRF for regularization of tensor fields for fiber tract enhancement. Two entities are considered in the model, namely, the l...

3D Moment Invariant Based Morphometry
This paper advocates the use of shape descriptors based on moments of 3D coordinates for morphometry of the cortical sulci. These descriptors, which have been introduced more than ...

A Multiscale Feature Detector for Morphological Analysis of the Brain
Feature detection on MR images has largely relied on intensity classification and gradient-based magnitudes. In this paper, we propose the use of phase congruency as a more robust ...

Interactive, GPU-Based Level Sets for 3D Segmentation
While level sets have demonstrated a great potential for 3D medical image segmentation, their usefulness has been limited by two problems. First, 3D level sets are relatively slow ...
