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)
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)
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)
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)
Medical image segmentation finds application in computer-aided diagnosis, computer-guided surgery, measuring tissue volumes, locating tumors, and pathologies. One approach to segmentation is to use active contours or snakes. Active contours start from an initialization (often manually specified) and are guided by image-dependent forces to the object(More)
We address the problem of detecting cells in biological images. The problem is important in many automated image analysis applications. We identify the problem as one of clustering and formulate it within the framework of robust estimation using loss functions. We show how suitable loss functions may be chosen based on a priori knowledge of the noise(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)
—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)
Time-of-flight (ToF) imaging is an active method that utilizes a temporally modulated light source and a correlation-based (or lock-in) imager that computes the round-trip travel time from source to scene and back. Much like conventional imaging ToF cameras suffer from the trade-off between depth of field (DOF) and light throughput-larger apertures allow(More)
