PDE & Level Sets: Algorithmic Approaches to Static & Motion Imagery is specially dedicated to the segmentation of complex shapes from the field of imaging sciences using level sets and PDEs. It covers the fundamentals of level sets, different kinds of concepts of both geodesic curvature flows and planar flows, as well as the power of incorporation of regional-statistics in level set framework. In covering this material, this book presents segmentation of object-in-motion imagery based on level sets in eigen analysis framework, while also presenting classical problems of boundary completion in cognitive images, like the pop-up of subjective contours in the famous triangle of Kanizsa using surface evolution framework, or the mean curvature evolution of a graph with respect to the Riemannian metric induced by the image. All results are presented for modal completion of cognitive objects with missing boundaries.
Book Series: Topics In Biomedical Engineering
In the medical field, medical imagery has come to be a discipline of its own, given the nature of its applications in the understanding of the human body and medical diagnostics. Image processing techniques are the core tools for solving these biomedical problems. The applications of Level sets has made a significant impact on medical imagery primarily because of its ability to perform efficient topology preservation and fast shape recovery. This has dominated the binary, grayscale and color frameworks, which the eye can perceive. It has not only the ability to find boundaries and surfaces that are deep seated in 2-D and 3-D volumes respectively, but also provide satisfactory solutions for the completion of cognitive objects with missing boundaries.
