Classication in high-dimensional feature spaces where interpretation and dimension reduction are of great importance is common in biological and medical applications. For these applications standard methods as microarrays, 1D NMR, and spectroscopy have become everyday tools for measuring thousands of features in samples of interest. Furthermore, the samples(More)
The structural organization of four microbial communities was analysed by a novel computer program, COMSTAT, which comprises ten features for quantifying three-dimensional biofilm image stacks. Monospecies biofilms of each of the four bacteria, Pseudomonas: putida, P. aureofaciens, P. fluorescens and P. aeruginosa, tagged with the green fluorescent protein(More)
In this paper, an unsupervised algorithm, called the Independent Histogram Pursuit (IHP), for segmenting dermatological lesions is proposed. The algorithm estimates a set of linear combinations of image bands that enhance different structures embedded in the image. In particular, the first estimated combination enhances the contrast of the lesion to(More)
The structural organization of microbial communities is influenced by many factors, e.g. nutrient composition, shear stress and temperature. This paper presents a general method for quantitative comparison of biofilm structures and assessment of experimental reproducibility between independent biofilm experiments. By using a novel computer program, COMSTAT,(More)
Today the design of custom in-the-ear hearing aids is based on personal experience and skills and not on a systematic description of the variation of the shape of the ear canal. In this paper it is described how a dense surface point distribution model of the human ear canal is built based on a training set of laser scanned ear impressions and a sparse set(More)
From a set of longitudinal three-dimensional scans of the same anatomical structure, we have accurately modeled the temporal shape and size changes using a linear shape model. On a total of 31 computed tomography scans of the mandible from six patients, 14,851 semilandmarks are found automatically using shape features and a new algorithm called(More)
In this paper, we present a set of extensions to the defor-mable template model: Active Appearance Model (AAM) proposed by Cootes et al. AAMs distinguish themselves by learning a priori knowledge through observation of shape and texture variation in a training set. This is used to obtain a compact object class description, which can be employed to rapidly(More)
— The estimation of flow fields from time sequences of satellite imagery has a number of important applications. For visualization of cloud or sea ice movements in sequences of crude temporal sampling, a satisfactory nonblurred temporal interpolation can be performed only when the flow field or an estimate thereof is known. Estimated flow fields in weather(More)
