We prove that the Toeplitz binary value matrix inversion associated with mth order E-spline interpolation can be implemented using only 2 (m + 1) additions. We develop pipelined architectures for real time B-spline interpolation based on simple running average filters. We also show that an ideal interpolating function, which is approximated by a truncated(More)
The B-spline functions are used to develop recursive algorithms for the efficient implementation of two-dimensional linear digital image filters. These filters may be spatially varying. The B-splines are used in a representation of the desired point spread function. We show that this leads to recursive algorithms and hardware implementations which are more(More)
A ``piecewise heuristic'' follower of the boundaries of difficult-to-notice nonoverlapping blobs in digitized images is described. The technique was tested on 324 X-ray images of candidate lung nodules from eight radiographs with good results. This technique is several times faster than earlier detectors of the boundaries of lung nodules, while maintaining(More)
