Biomedical images usually contain complex objects, which will vary in appearance significantly from one image to another. Attempting to measure or detect the presence of particular structures in such images can be a daunting task. The inherent variability will thwart naive schemes. However, by using models which can cope with the variability it is possible to successfully analyse complex images. Here we will consider a number of methods where the model represents the expected shape and local… Expand
Back to the Future: Learning Shape Models from 3D CAD Data
TLDR
This paper goes back to the ideas from the early days of computer vision, by using 3D object models as the only source of information for building a multi-view object class detector and uses these models for learning 2D shape that can be robustly matched to 2D natural images. Expand
Landmark Influence Visualization in Active Shape Models
TLDR
A novel landmark influence visualization is proposed that improves the usability of Active Shape Models and finds that users found the disk glyphs and animations useful in their segmentation workflow. Expand
From Images to Shape Models for Object Detection
TLDR
An object class detection approach which fully integrates the complementary strengths offered by shape matchers and can localize object boundaries accurately and does not need segmented examples for training (only bounding-boxes). Expand
Accurate Object Detection with Deformable Shape Models Learnt from Images
TLDR
An object class detection approach which fully integrates the complementary strengths offered by shape matchers, and can localize object boundaries accurately, while needing no segmented examples for training (only bounding-boxes). Expand
Probabilistic Fitting of Active Shape Models
TLDR
This paper proposes a fully probabilistic interpretation of ASM fitting as Bayesian inference, using the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm to infer the posterior and using the maximum a posteriori sample as the segmentation result. Expand
Statistical Shape Models of the Heart: Applications to Cardiac Imaging
Abstract Recent advances in imaging technology have enabled the non-invasive study of the structure and the function of the heart, the valves and the vascular system. Different imaging modalities areExpand
Multi‐resolution multi‐object statistical shape models based on the locality assumption
TLDR
A novel approach for learning representative multi‐resolution multi‐object statistical shape models from a small number of training samples that adequately model the variability of each individual object as well as their interrelations is presented. Expand
Automatic segmentation of faces using ASM
Automatic segmentation of images, means being able to automatically divide an image into parts that can be analysed to give meaning. In segmentation of faces, the goal is to locate the features ofExpand
Semi-Automatic Segmentation of the Right Ventricle in MR Images
Cardiac magnetic resonance is widely used to non-invasive image the heart, for both clinical and research purposes. Segmenting different parts of the heart provides important diagnostic information.Expand
Abdomen and spinal cord segmentation with augmented active shape models
TLDR
This study proposes an augmented ASM (AASM) by integrating the multiatlas label fusion (MALF) and level set (LS) techniques into the traditional ASM framework and proposes the AASM framework as a two-dimensional segmentation technique targeting structures with one axis of regularity. Expand

A mixture model for representing shape variation
TLDR
The shape variation displayed by a class of objects can be represented as probability density function, allowing us to determine plausible and implausible examples of the class, and how this distribution can be used in image search to locateExamples of the modelled object in new images. Expand

TLDR
The authors apply flexible constraints, in the form of a probabilistic deformable model, to the problem of segmenting natural 2-D objects whose diversity and irregularity of shape make them poorly represented in terms of fixed features or form. Expand
