Time of flight (ToF) cameras use a temporally modulated light source and measure correlation between the reflected light and a sensor modulation pattern, in order to infer scene depth. In this paper, we show that such correlational sensors can also be used to selectively accept or reject light rays from certain scene depths. The basic idea is to carefully(More)
Automated image segmentation techniques are useful tools in biological image analysis and are an essential step in tracking applications. Typically, snakes or active contours are used for segmentation and they evolve under the influence of certain internal and external forces. Recently, a new class of shape-specific active contours have been introduced,(More)
Transient imaging techniques capture the propagation of an ultra-short pulse of light through a scene, which in effect captures the optical impulse response of the scene. Recently, it has been shown that we can capture transient images using commercial, correlation imager based Time-of-Flight (ToF) systems. But the temporal resolution of these transient(More)
A variety of techniques such as light field, structured illumination, and time-of-flight (TOF) are commonly used for depth acquisition in consumer imaging, robotics and many other applications. Unfortunately, each technique suffers from its individual limitations preventing robust depth sensing. In this paper, we explore the strengths and weaknesses of(More)
Western Blot analysis is an analytical technique used in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunogenetics and other Molecular Biology studies to separate proteins by electrophoresis. The procedure results in images containing nearly rectangular-shaped blots. In this paper, we address the problem of quantitation of the blots using automated image processing(More)
Glaucoma is currently one of the major causes of vision loss worldwide. Though the lost vision capability cannot be recovered, preventive steps such as clinical diagnosis and necessary treatment can be taken in order to minimize visual impairment due to glaucoma. The process of clinical diagnosis needs manual examination and outlining of the optic disc and(More)
We develop a generalized active contour formalism for image segmentation based on shape templates. The shape template is subjected to a restricted affine transformation (RAT) in order to segment the object of interest. RAT allows for translation, rotation, and scaling, which give a total of five degrees of freedom. The proposed active contour comprises an(More)
Light scattering on diffuse rough surfaces was long assumed to destroy geometry and photometry information about hidden (non line of sight) objects making ‘looking around the corner’ (LATC) and ‘non line of sight’ (NLOS) imaging impractical. Recent work pioneered by Kirmani et al. [1], Velten et al. [2] demonstrated that(More)
Can we reconstruct the entire internal shape of a room if all we can directly observe is a small portion of one internal wall, presumably through a window in the room? While conventional wisdom may indicate that this is not possible, motivated by recent work on ‘looking around corners’, we show that one can exploit light echoes to reconstruct(More)
In most biological tissues, light scattering due to small differences in refractive index limits the depth of optical imaging systems. Two-photon microscopy (2PM), which significantly reduces the scattering of the excitation light, has emerged as the most common method to image deep within scattering biological tissue. This technique, however, requires(More)
