Automatic extraction and measurement of leukocyte motion in microvessels using spatiotemporal image analysis

Abstract

This paper describes a computer vision system for the automatic extraction and velocity measurement of moving leukocytes that adhere to microvessel walls from a sequence of images. The motion of these leukocytes can be visualized as motion along the wall contours. The authors use the constraint that the leukocytes move along the vessel wall contours to… (More)
