Segmentation of the Left Ventricle from Cine MR Images Using a Comprehensive Approach
No opinion
Segmentation of the left ventricle is important in assessment of cardiac functional parameters. Currently, manual segmentation is the gold standard for acquiring these parameters and can be time-consuming. Therefore, accuracy and automation are two important [...]

Go-Go Gabor Gadgetry
No opinion
Although Gabor filtering is quite prevalent in the computer vision community for such tasks as texture segmentation and motion analysis, such capabilities are conspicuously absent from the Insight Toolkit. The contribution described in this paper attempts [...]

Automatic Conductance Estimation Methods for Anisotropic Diffusion ITK Filters
No opinion
The anisotropic diffusion algorithm has been intensively studied in the past decades, which could be considered as a very efficient image denoising procedure in many biomedical applications. Several authors contributed many clever solutions for diffusion [...]

To facilitate the analysis of medical image data in research environment, MATITK is developed to allow ITK algorithms to be called in MATLAB. ITK is a powerful open-source image analysis toolkit, but it requires the knowledge of C++ to use it. With the help [...]

Variance Image Filter
This paper describes an intensity image filter for computing the variance of pixel values contained within a neighborhood centered at each input pixel. The output image contains the calculated variance at each input pixel location. Variance calculations can [...]

ND morphological contour interpolation
No opinion
This document describes a new class, itk::MorphologicalContourInterpolator, which implements a method proposed by Albu et al. in 2008. Interpolation is done by first determining correspondence between shapes on adjacent segmented slices by detecting overlaps, [...]

Efficient contour detection in binary and label images
ly in ITK, the only way to find the contour of the objects in a binary image is to use the BinaryErodeImageFilter, with a kernel of radius 1. This filter is a generic filter, made to support any shape and size of structuring element, and thus is not optimized [...]

A Fast Approximation to the Bilateral Filter for ITK
This document describes an implementation of an alternative bilateral filtering algorithm in ITK. This class implements the fast bilateral filter algorithm in ITK by taking the input image and organizing it into the required data structure as an ITK Image [...]

Direct Fourier Tomographic Reconstruction Image-To-Image Filter
We present an open-source ITK implementation of a direct Fourier method for tomographic reconstruction, applicable to parallel-beam x-ray images. Direct Fourier reconstruction makes use of the central-slice theorem to build a polar 2D Fourier space from the [...]

Generalizing vesselness with respect to dimensionality and shape
In this paper we present a generalization of Frangi's vesselness measure cite{Frangi1998} for the enhacement of M-dimensional shapes in N-dimensional images, together with the implementation of the corresponding Insight Toolkit (ITK) filter [...]

ITK Image IO interface with Apple iOS
No opinion
We have recently detailed the procedure for building ITK on the iOS. In this work, we contribute itkiOSImageIO , the necessary ITK class that provides the input/output (IO) interface with the repository of images stored on iOS Apple devices, such as the iPod [...]

An ITK-based Implementation of the Stochastic Rank Correlation (SRC) Metric
Recently, Birkfellner et al. proposed a novel image-to-image merit function (stochastic rank correlation, SRC) for robust intensity-based 2D/3D image registration. In this work, we summarize the basic idea of SRC, and present a generic ITK-based [...]

An ITK Implementation of the Symmetric Log-Domain Diffeomorphic Demons Algorithm
This article provides an implementation of the symmetric log-domain diffeomorphic image registration algorithm, or symmetric demons algorithm for short. It generalizes Thirion's demons and the diffeomorphic demons algorithm. The main practical advantages of [...]

A patch-based framework for new ITK functionality: Joint fusion, denoising, and non-local super-resolution
No opinion
In an earlier Insight Journal article, we introduced an ITK implementation of the adaptive patch-based image denoising algorithm described in [3]. We follow-up up that offering with a generalized non-local, patch-based ITK class framework and a refactored [...]

Flux driven medial curve extraction
In this document it is described the implementation of the flux driven automatic centerline extraction algorithm proposed by Bouix et al. in 2004. This is based on a skeletonisation algorithm initially proposed by Siddiqi et al. in 2002, using properties of [...]

Minimally Interactive Knowledge-based Coronary Tracking in CTA using a Minimal Cost Path
No opinion
An algorithm for minimally interactive coronary artery tracking is presented. Tracking ability and accuracy results are demonstrated on 16 images CTA images. First, a region of interest is automatically selected and a denoising filter applied. Then, for each [...]
