Image resizing can be achieved more effectively if we have a better understanding of the image semantics. In this paper, we analyze the <i>translational symmetry</i>, which exists in many real-world images. By detecting the symmetric lattice in an image, we can <i>summarize</i>, instead of only distorting or cropping, the image content. This opens a new(More)
Midsagittal plane (MSP) extraction from 3D brain images is considered as a promising technique for human brain symmetry analysis. In this paper, we present a fast and robust MSP extraction method based on 3D scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT). Unlike the existing brain MSP extraction methods, which mainly rely on the gray similarity, 3D edge(More)
In this paper, a novel analog gamma correction scheme with a logarithmic image sensor dedicated to minimize the quantization noise of the high dynamic applications is presented. The proposed implementation exploits a non-linear voltage-controlled-oscillator (VCO) based analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to perform the gamma correction during the(More)
Single-image blind deblurring for imaging sensors in the Internet of Things (IoT) is a challenging ill-conditioned inverse problem, which requires regularization techniques to stabilize the image restoration process. The purpose is to recover the underlying blur kernel and latent sharp image from only one blurred image. Under many degraded imaging(More)
Structure-aware halftoning technique is one of the state-of-the-art algorithms for generating structure-preserving bitonal images. However, the slow optimization process prohibits its real-time application. This is due to its high computational cost of similarity measurement and iterative refinement. Unfortunately, the structure-aware halftoning cannot be(More)
Symmetry analysis for brain images has been considered as a promising technique for automatically extracting the pathological brain slices in conventional scanning. In this article, we present a fast and robust symmetry detection method for automatically extracting symmetry axis (fissure line) from a brain image. Unlike the existing brain symmetry detection(More)
B-spline based deformable model is commonly used in recovering three-dimensional (3D) cardiac motion from tagged MRI due to its compact description, localized continuity and control flexibility. However, existing approaches usually ignore an important well-known fact that myocardial tissue is incompressible. In this paper, we propose to reconstruct 3D(More)
This paper present a novel algorithm for cartoon image segmentation based on the simple linear iterative clustering (SLIC) superpixels and adaptive region propagation merging. To break the limitation of the original SLIC algorithm in confirming to image boundaries, this paper proposed to improve the quality of the superpixels generation based on the(More)
