Ridge-like structures in digital images may be extracted by convolving the images with derivatives of Gaussians. The choice of the convolution operator and of the parameters involved defines a specific ridge image. In this paper, various ridge measures related to isophote curvature are constructed, reviewed, and evaluated with respect to their usability in CT/MRI matching of human brain scans. Construction is initially done using heuristics in two-dimensional images, and then established firmly… CONTINUE READING
