ÐThis paper makes two contributions to the problem of needle-map recovery using shape-from-shading. First, we provide a geometric update procedure which allows the image irradiance equation to be satisfied as a hard constraint. This not only improves the data closeness of the recovered needle-map, but also removes the necessity for extensive parameter(More)
ÐThis paper investigates whether surface topography information extracted from intensity images using a recently reported shape-from-shading (SFS) algorithm can be used for the purposes of 3D object recognition. We consider how curvature and shape-index information delivered by this algorithm can be used to recognize objects based on their surface(More)
This paper reports the application of a recently developed shape-from-shading technique to estimate facial pose. The shape-from-shading algorithm uses a new geometric technique for solving the image irradiance equation together with curvature consistency constraints. Orientation histograms extracted from the the needle-maps delivered by the new(More)
Interest in view interpolation and novel view synthesis is growing. In this paper we show how dense correspondence can be found between needle-maps generated using shape-from-shading, which in turn can be used to generate new needle-maps. From these we can produce novel intermediate views, and also estimates of how each intermediate view would look under(More)
Insulin- and contraction-stimulated increases in glucose uptake into skeletal muscle occur in part as a result of the translocation of glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) from intracellular stores to the plasma membrane (PM). This study aimed to use immunofluorescence microscopy in human skeletal muscle to quantify GLUT4 redistribution from intracellular stores(More)
Increases in insulin-mediated glucose uptake following endurance training (ET) and sprint interval training (SIT) have in part been attributed to concomitant increases in glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) protein content in skeletal muscle. This study used an immunofluorescence microscopy method to investigate changes in subcellular GLUT4 distribution and(More)
This paper presents an experimental study of the problem of object recognition using surface attributes delivered by shape-from-shading. We focus our attention on histogrambased representations. Several surface attributes are considered. These include slant and tilt angles, mean and Gaussian curvature, and, shape-index and curvedness. Our study reveals that(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can measure the effects of therapies targeting the tumor vasculature and has demonstrated that vascular-damaging agents (VDA) induce acute vascular shutdown in tumors in human and animal models. However, at subtherapeutic doses, blood flow may recover before the induction of significant levels of necrosis. We present the(More)
