Imaging the developing heart: synchronized time-lapse microscopy during developmental changes

How do you use imaging to analyse the development of the heart, which not only changes shape but also undergoes constant, high-speed, quasi-periodic changes? We have integrated ideas from prospective and retrospective optical gating to capture …

The Multiscale Bowler-Hat Transform for Vessel Enhancement in 3D Biomedical Images

Enhancement and detection of 3D vessel-like structures has long been an open problem as most existing image processing methods fail in many aspects, including a lack of uniform enhancement between vessels of different radii and a lack of enhancement …

Runway detection in High Resolution remote sensing data

Runways are vital descriptive features of airports and knowledge of their location is important to many aviation and military applications. With the recent wide availability of remote sensing data, there is demand for an automatic process of …

Speeding up active mesh segmentation by local termination of nodes

This article outlines a procedure for speeding up segmentation of images using active mesh systems. Active meshes and other deformable models are very popular in image segmentation due to their ability to capture weak or missing boundary …
