In many image analysis and visual inspection applications, the Euler number of a binary image serves as an important feature. For example, often in medical image analysis, when we want to count the number of particles containing no holes, we can obtain this number by calculating the Euler number of the binary image. Therefore, how to form a fast algorithm to obtain this feature in real time, is of significance in applications. Because recently the bit-plane computers are used in many cases as a… CONTINUE READING
