A new geodesic-based feature for characterization of 3D shapes: application to soft tissue organ temporal deformations

This study proposes a method for characterizing 3D shapes from point clouds and shows a direct application on a study of organ temporal deformations, showing that the proposed feature may be useful for several computer vision applications such as medical imaging, aerodynamics and robotics.

A Diffeomorphic Mapping Based Characterization of Temporal Sequences: Application to the Pelvic Organ Dynamics Assessment

A methodology aiming at quantifying the evolution of a set of contours without landmarks based on the large deformation diffeomorphic mapping paradigm and the shape representation based on currents is presented, which allows both to propose a shape metric and a curve matching of the timed variations.

4D Continuous Medial Representation Trajectory Estimation for Longitudinal Shape Analysis

A method that estimates a continuous trajectory of medial surfaces with correspondence over time to track longitudinal pose changes and local thickness changes separately is proposed and demonstrated with experiments on synthetic examples and real anatomical shape complexes.

An Eulerian PDE approach for computing tissue thickness

An Eulerian framework for computing the thickness of tissues between two simply connected boundaries that does not require landmark points or parameterizations of either boundary is outlined and shows strong potential for application in tissue thickness visualization and quantification.

Geodesic shape regression with multiple geometries and sparse parameters

High-resolution temporal reconstruction of ankle joint from dynamic MRI

An intensity-based registration method to accurately estimate the rigid motion of the ankle bones is presented and the use of the log-euclidean framework to reconstruct a four-dimensional (3D+time) high-resolution dynamic MRI sequence from a low- resolution dynamic sequence and one high resolution static MR image is investigated.

Three‐dimensional physics‐based registration of pelvic system using 2D dynamic magnetic resonance imaging slices

A novel method for dynamic 3D registration of female pelvic organs using 2D dynamic magnetic‐resonance images (MRIs) is introduced to provide a better knowledge and understanding of pathologies such as prolapsus or abnormal mobility of tissues.

Statistical Analysis of Organs’ Shapes and Deformations: The Riemannian and the Affine Settings in Computational Anatomy

This chapter details the extension of this framework to Lie groups endowed with the affine symmetric connection, a more invariant but non-metric structure on transformation groups, and provides strong theoretical bases for the use of one-parameter subgroups and diffeomorphisms parametrized by stationary velocity fields (SVF).

Cardiac Motion Recovery by Coupling an Electromechanical Model and Cine-MRI Data: First Steps

It is shown that the coupling approach allows us to recover some tangential component of the ventricles motion which cannot be obtained from classical geometrical tracking approaches due to the aperture problem.
