Image registration is an important procedure for medical diagnosis. Since the large inter-site retrospective validation study led by Fitzpatrick at Vanderbilt University, voxel-based methods and more specifically mutual information-based registration methods (see for instance [IEEE Trans. Med. Imag. 22 (8) (2003) 986] for a review on these methods) have(More)
Brain atlases contain a wealth of information that could be used in radiation therapy or neurosurgical planning. Until now, however, when large space-occupying tumors and lesions drastically alter the shape of brain structures and substructures, atlas-based methods have been of limited use. In this work, we present a new technique that permits a brain atlas(More)
In this paper, a novel form frame line detection algorithm is proposed based on the Directional SingleConnected Chain (DSCC). Defined as an array of black pixel run-lengths, DSCC works very well as an image structure element or vector in our vectorization algorithm. By merging multiple DSCCs under some constraints, we are able to extract the form frame(More)
A two-dimensional (2D) lattice Boltzmann method (LBM)-cellular automaton model is presented to investigate the dendritic growth of binary alloys in the presence of natural convection. The kinetic-based LBM is adopted to calculate the transport phenomena by the evolution of distribution functions of moving pseudo-particles. To numerically solve natural(More)
