The author provide a set of classes to find minimal paths in images. A set of optimization methods are provided.Hypothesis:
Minimal path can be extracted between two points using a speed image by means of the Fast marching fronts.Evidence:
Code and tests are provided.Open Science:
Code and data is provided. I've been able to use the method on my own data using my own speed functions.Reproducibility:
I was able to run the code without problems.Quality of the data :
The method is usable thanks to the multiple examples an tests provided.Interest:
In medical imaging, this method is very useful in the context of centerline generation. The author states concerns about possible patent violations if this code is used to generate centerlines.Free comment :
A good contribution to ITK. Applicable to many fields and applications. Centerline generation being the most useful in medical imaging, must require caution as may be under a patent.
