Detection of curvilinear structures and reconstruction of their regions in gray-scale images


In this paper, we present a newmethod for detecting curvilinear structures and reconstructing their regions in gray-scale images. The concept of skeleton extraction is introduced to detect more general structures such as tapering structures. A candidate skeleton is extracted from the Euclidean distance map that is constructed based on the edge map of an… (More)
