Abstract In this thesis, we present a coherent and consistent approach for the estimationofshapeandshapeattributesfromnoisyimages. Ascomparedtothetraditionalsequential approach, our scheme is centered on a shape model which drives thefeature extraction, shape optimization, and the attribute evaluation modules.In the first section, we deal with the detection of image features that guidetheshape-extractionprocess.

Segmentation of 3D Objects from MRI Volume Data Using Constrained Elastic Deformations of Flexible Fourier Surface Models
TLDR
The 3D model building and Fourier-snake procedure are demonstrated by segmenting deep structures of the human brain from MR volume data by applying a newly developed surface parametrization which achieves a uniform mapping between object surface and parameter space. Expand
Unsupervised contour representation and estimation using B-splines and a minimum description length criterion
TLDR
A deterministic iterative algorithm is developed to implement the derived contour estimation criterion and the result is an unsupervised parametric deformable contour that adapts its degree of smoothness/complexity and it also estimates the observation (image) model parameters. Expand
An Active Contour Model for Segmentation Based on Cubic B-splines and Gradient Vector Flow
TLDR
Two existing approaches for segmentation with snakes are combined, using cubic B-splines to represent the snake using coarse-to-fine control point insertion and putting the snake in a gradient vector flow (GVF) field, which enables the snake to evolve into concavities of the shape. Expand
Deformable boundary finding in medical images by integrating gradient and region information
TLDR
The authors' approach uses Green's theorem to derive the boundary of a homogeneous region-classified area in the image and integrates this with a gray level gradient-based boundary finder, which combines the perceptual notions of edge/shape information with gray level homogeneity. Expand
Efficient energies and algorithms for parametric snakes
TLDR
It is shown that parametric snakes can guarantee low curvature curves, but only if they are described in the curvilinear abscissa, and a new edge-based energy term is introduced that will force this configuration. Expand
Predictive (un)distortion model and 3-D reconstruction by biplane snakes
TLDR
The proposed methods decrease up to 88% the reconstruction error obtained when geometrical distortion effects are ignored, and improve the biplane snake behavior when dealing with wavy vessels, by means of using generalized gradient vector flow. Expand
Hierarchical active shape models, using the wavelet transform
TLDR
This paper presents a method that overcomes this limitation, by using a hierarchical formulation of active shape models, using the wavelet transform, and eliminates the need for adopting ad hoc physical models, such as elasticity or other smoothness models, which do not necessarily reflect true biological variability. Expand
Image Segmentation Using Active Contours: Calculus of Variations or Shape Gradients?
TLDR
This work considers the problem of segmenting an image through the minimization of an energy criterion involving region and boundary functionals and revisits this problem using the notion of a shape derivative and shows that the same equations can be elegantly derived without going through the unnatural step of converting the region integrals into boundary integrals. Expand
Statistical Region Snake-Based Segmentation Adapted to Different Physical Noise Models
TLDR
A region snake approach is proposed and fast algorithms for the segmentation of an object in an image are determined by transforming the summations over a region, for the calculation of the statistics, into summations along the boundary of the region. Expand

TLDR
A model-based approach using B-splines for curve representation and a backpropagation neural network for text/marking recognition is adopted to have the object recognizer fast and computationally simple. Expand
