We propose a new method to enhance and extract the retinal vessels. First, we employ a multiscale Hessian-based filter to compute the maximum response of vessel likeness function for each pixel. By this step, blood vessels of different widths are significantly enhanced. Then, we adopt a nonlocal mean filter to suppress the noise of enhanced image and(More)
Keratinocyte growth factor 1 (KGF1) is a growth factor that promotes epidermal cell proliferation, migration, differentiation, and wound repair. It is expressed at low levels in a form of inclusion body in E. coli. In order to increase its expression and activity, we produced tobacco plants expressing KGF1 via Agrobacterium-mediated transformation using a(More)
3D medical images are widely used to assist diagnosis and surgical planning in clinical applications, where quantitative measurement of interesting objects in the image is of great importance. Volume rendering is widely used for qualitative visualization of 3D medical images. In this paper, we introduce a volume-rendering-based interactive 3D measurement(More)
