A discrete dynamic contour model
A discrete dynamic model for defining contours in 2-D images is developed and the final shape of the model is a reproducible approximation of the desired contour. Expand
Automatic Contour Propagation in Cine Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Images
The propagation method for automatic contour propagation in cine cardiac magnetic resonance images proved to be fast, robust, and accurate, and the resulting contours can be used to accurately determine physiological parameters such as stroke volume and ejection fraction. Expand
Automated 3-D PDM construction from segmented images using deformable models
A novel method for the automated construction of three-dimensional PDM from segmented images based on a novel deformable model technique is presented and it is demonstrated that the method accurately represents and predicts shapes. Expand
Shape Constrained Deformable Models for 3D Medical Image Segmentation
This work presents an approach which embeds an active shape model into an elastically deformable surface model, and combines the advantages of both approaches, and leads reliably to a very good overall segmentation. Expand

A novel method for the automated construction of 3D PDM from segmented images by adapting a triangulated learning shape to segmented volumetric images of the remaining shapes is presented. Expand
Three-Dimensional Skeletonization: Principle and Algorithm
An algorithm is proposed for skeletonization of 3-D images that allows local decisions in the erosion process and a table of the decisions for all possible configurations is given. Expand
Applications of three-dimensional display techniques in medical imaging.
This paper outlines some of the current uses of three-dimensional techniques in medical imaging applications and their potential for the future, using a CT scanner as an example, as it applies to a case involving craniofacial surgery. Expand
Three-dimensional imaging in craniofacial surgery
The technical aspects of 3-D imaging are discussed in relation to their applications in Craniofacial Surgery, and reference is made to the literature describing these techniques in full detail. Expand
N.m.r. relaxation and images of human breast tumours in vitro.
It is found that fat and non-fatty tissue in dissected samples of the mamma differ in their T1/T2 ratios. This opens the possibility of locating tumours by n.m.r. imaging, because they have a lowerExpand
