It is clinically important to quantify the geometric parameters of an abnormal vessel, as this information can aid radiologists in choosing appropriate treatments or apparatuses. Centerline and cross-sectional diameters are commonly used to characterize the morphology of vessel in various clinical applications. Due to the existence of stenosis or aneurysm,(More)
—This letter presents a robust similarity measure for registering charged-couple device (CCD) and infrared (IR) images. The measure is based on the entropy obtained from a 3-D joint histogram incorporating edginess and modified generalized gradient vector flow (GGVF). To make a reliable mapping relationship between the edge regions of two images, the(More)
Fast and accurate energy calibration of photon counting spectral detectors (PCSDs) is essential for their biomedical applications to identify and characterize bio-components or contrast agents in tissues. Using the x-ray tube voltage as a reference for energy calibration is known to be an efficient method, but there has been no consideration in the energy(More)
An easily implementable tissue cancellation method for dual energy mammography is proposed to reduce anatomical noise and enhance lesion visibility. For dual energy calibration, the images of an imaging object are directly mapped onto the images of a customized calibration phantom. Each pixel pair of the low and high energy images of the imaging object was(More)
