Application of Segmentation for Correction of Intensity Bias in X‐Ray Computed Tomography Images
A simple three-dimensional approach to numerically correct for image artifacts using sequential segmentation is developed, which leads to a significant improvement of grayscale data as well as final segmentation results with reasonable computational demand.
Segmentation of X‐ray computed tomography images of porous materials: A crucial step for characterization and quantitative analysis of pore structures
Nondestructive imaging methods such as X‐ray computed tomography (CT) yield high‐resolution, three‐dimensional representations of pore space and fluid distribution within porous materials. Steadily
Automatic Object Segmentation by Quantum Cuts
In this study, the link between quantum mechanics and graph-cuts is exploited and a novel saliency map generation and salient object segmentation method is proposed based on the ground state solution of a modified Hamiltonian, which outperforms many existing state-of-the-art algorithms.
Three‐Dimensional Multiphase Segmentation of X‐Ray CT Data of Porous Materials Using a Bayesian Markov Random Field Framework
A segmentation method based on a Bayesian Markov random field framework amenable to true three-dimensional multiphase processing was developed and evaluated and the developed algorithm is stable and computationally more efficient than other commonly applied porous media segmentation models.
A comparison of 2D vs. 3D thresholding of X-ray CT imagery
Non-destructive soil constituent analysis has advanced from resin impregnation of intact samples to the utilization of non-destructive imaging devices (i.e., CT scanners) for 3D composition. A
Supervoxel-Based Segmentation of Mitochondria in EM Image Stacks With Learned Shape Features
This work proposes an automated graph partitioning scheme that is able to segment mitochondria at a performance level close to that of a human annotator, and outperforms a state-of-the-art 3-D segmentation technique.
Multiple-organ segmentation by graph cuts with supervoxel nodes
This work introduces a novel higher-precision method to segment multiple organs using graph cuts within medical images such as CT-scanned images by utilizing SLIC super voxel algorithm and verifying the performance of the segmentation algorithm by energy minimization comparing to the ground truth.
Extended quantum cuts for unsupervised salient object extraction
Extended Quantum Cuts is proposed, which consistently achieves an exquisite performance over all benchmark saliency detection datasets, containing around 18 k images in total and outperforms the state-of-the-art on a recently announced RGB-Depth saliency dataset.
