This paper presents a literature survey of automatic 3D surface registration techniques emphasizing the mathematical and algorithmic underpinnings of the subject. The relevance of surface registration to medical imaging is that there is much useful anatomical information in the form of collected surface points which originate from complimentary modalities(More)
Image-guided surgery (IGS) is a technique for localizing anatomical structures on the basis of volumetric image data and for determining the optimal surgical path to reach these structures , by the means of a localization device, or probe, whose position is tracked over time. The usefulness of this technology hinges on the accuracy of the transformation(More)
This paper addresses the problem of super-resolving a single image and recovering the characteristics of the sensor using a learning-based approach. In particular, the point spread function (PSF) of the camera is sought by minimizing the mean Euclidean distance function between patches from the input frame and from degraded versions of high-resolution(More)
This paper presents comparisons of two learning-based super-resolution algorithms as well as standard interpolation methods. To allow quality assessment of results, a comparison of a variety of image quality measures is also performed. Results show that a MRF-based super-resolution algorithm improves a previously interpolated image. The estimated degree of(More)
Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) is a popular tool for multiclass discriminative dimensionality reduction. However, LDA suffers from two major problems: (1) It only optimizes the Bayes error for the case of unimodal Gaussian classes with equal covariances (assuming full rank matrices) and, (2) The multiclass extension maximizes the sum of pairwise(More)
