Extracellular storage of thyroglobulin (TG) is an important prerequisite for maintaining constant levels of thyroid hormones in vertebrates. Storage of large amounts is made possible by compactation of TG in the follicle lumen with concentrations of at least 100-400 mg/ml. We recently observed that the luminal content from bovine thyroids can be isolated in(More)
This paper presents a novel method for salient region detection. With the same biologically inspired logic as Itti et al., we use wavelet decomposition to obtain a ‘centre’ scale, and filtered versions of the original image for the ‘surround’ scale. Our method yields saliency map that is of the same resolution of the investigated(More)
This paper presents a novel method for salient edge detection based on the frequency tuning principle. Limiting the operation to a single wavelet sub-band, the frequency components of the wavelet are analyzed. The average value in each frequency component (horizontal, vertical, and diagonal) is computed and subtracted from each pixel in its respective(More)
