An automatic algorithm capable of segmenting the whole vessel tree and calculate vessel diameter and orientation in a digital ophthalmologic image is presented in this work. The algorithm is based on a parametric model of a vessel that can assume arbitrarily complex shape and a simple measure of match that quantifies how well the vessel model matches a(More)
This work investigates the usefulness of univariate Hermite interpolation of the total degree (HTD) for a biomedical signal processing task: slice interpolation in a variety of medical imaging modalities. The HTD is an algebraically demanding interpolation method that utilizes information of the values of the signal to be interpolated at distinct support(More)
Univariate Hermite interpolation of the total degree (HTD) is an algebraically demanding interpolation method that utilizes information of the values of the signal to be interpolated at distinct support positions, as well as the values of its derivatives up to a maximum available order. In this work the interpolation kernels of the univariate HTD are(More)
—Generalized cylinders (GCs) have been proposed in computer vision for object modeling in two dimensional images. However approaches so far have not investigated closed form solutions, based on a formal generic definition that covers every possible family of surfaces. In this work we derive the parametric definition of the torus–like surface that is(More)
