Pupillometry, a non-invasive technique, was applied in our lab to study the schizophrenia-related PLR alterations in a new selectively bred rat substrain, named WISKET. The pupil responses to light impulses were recorded with an infrared camera; the videos were automatically processed and features were extracted. Besides the classical statistical analysis (ANOVA), feature selection and classification were applied to reveal the significant differences in the PLR parameters between the control and WISKET animals.

Autonomic Neuroscience: Basic and Clinical.0 aImpaired pupillary control in schizophrenialike WISKET rats Auto bElsevierc2018 September a34-420 v2133 aPatients with schizophrenia show impairments in autonomic regulation, including pupillomotor control. The aim of this study was to explore the changes of pupillary light reflex in a new substrain (WISKET) with several schizophrenia-like alterations.

Male WISKET rats housed individually (for four weeks) and treated with ketamine (for 3 × 5 days) after weaning and naive group-housed Wistar rats (controls) were involved in the study. The pupillary light reflex was studied in two series after sedation (diazepam) or anesthesia (chloral hydrate). Video recordings were evaluated with custom made video analyzer software.

Several significant changes were observed between the two groups: the initial and minimum pupil diameters were greater, the degree of the constriction was lower, and the flatness of the curve and the total duration of constriction were shorter in the sedated WISKET rats. No other pupillary parameters (latency, amplitude and redilation) showed significant alterations.

Chloral hydrate anesthesia prolonged the constriction and redilation processes compared to the sedated animals, and diminished the differences between the groups.

In conclusion, WISKET rats showed disturbances in the pupillary light reflex, suggesting a general shift of autonomic balance towards a sympathetic predominance. The results provide further evidence to support the validity of WISKET rats as a complex, chronic animal model of schizophrenia.

It is essentially the measurement of the pupil diameter over time. Here, specially designed computer algorithms provide fast, reliable and reproducible solutions for the analysis. These methods use a priori information about the shape and color of the pupil. Our study focuses on measuring the diameter and dynamics of the pupils of rats with schizophrenia using videos recorded with a modified digital camera under infrared (IR) illumination. We developed a novel, robust method that measures the size of a pupil even under poor circumstances (noise, blur, reflections and occlusions). We compare our results with measurements obtained using manual annotation.

We propose a new method for multivalued DT, which performs the reconstruction as an energy minimisation task. For this algorithm, we define an energy function that can mathematically formulate the reconstruction task, and design a novel optimisation process for approximating the minima of this energy function. We validate the algorithm by comparing its performance with other cutting-edge reconstruction algorithms from the literature. We show that our method can compete with the currently used reconstruction techniques and under certain circumstances (e.g. with a low number of projections, or when the projection data are affected by random noise) it can even outperform them.

Here we propose a general framework in *n*-dimensions to solve binary shape/object matching problems without the need of establishing additional point or other type of correspondences. The approach is based on generating and solving polynomial systems of equations. We also propose an extension which, provided that a suitable segmentation method can produce a fuzzy border representation, further increases the registration precision. Via numerous synthetic and real test we examine the different solution techniques of the polynomial systems of equations. We take into account a direct analytical, an iterative least-squares, and a combined method. Iterative and combined approaches produce the most precise results. Comparison is made against competing methods for rigid-body problems. Our method is orders of magnitude faster and is able to recover alignment regardless of the magnitude of the deformation compared to the narrow capture range of others. The applicability of the proposed methods is demonstrated on real X-ray images of hip replacement implants and 3D CT volumes of the pelvic area. Since the images must be parsed through only once, our approach is especially suitable for solving registration problems of large images.

Nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates induce osteonecrosis mostly in the jaw and less frequently in other bones. Because of the crucial role of periosteal perfusion in bone repair, we investigated zoledronate-induced microcirculatory reactions in the mandibular periosteum in comparison with those in the tibia in a clinically relevant model of bisphosphonate-induced medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ).

### Materials and methods

Sprague–Dawley rats were treated with zoledronate (ZOL; 80 i.v. μg/kg/week over 8 weeks) or saline vehicle. The first two right mandibular molar teeth were extracted after 3 weeks. Various systemic and local (periosteal) microcirculatory inflammatory parameters were examined by intravital videomicroscopy after 9 weeks.

### Results

Gingival healing disorders (∼100 %) and MRONJ developed in 70 % of ZOL-treated cases but not after saline (shown by micro-CT). ZOL induced significantly higher degrees of periosteal leukocyte rolling and adhesion in the mandibular postcapillary venules (at both extraction and intact sites) than at the tibia. Leukocyte NADPH-oxidase activity was reduced; leukocyte CD11b and plasma TNF-alpha levels were unchanged.

### Conclusion

Chronic ZOL treatment causes a distinct microcirculatory inflammatory reaction in the mandibular periosteum but not in the tibia. The local reaction in the absence of augmented systemic leukocyte inflammatory activity suggests that topically different, endothelium-specific changes may play a critical role in the pathogenesis of MRONJ.

### Clinical relevance

This model permits for the first time to explore the microvascular processes in the mandibular periosteum after chronic ZOL treatment. This approach may contribute to a better understanding of the pathomechanism and the development of strategies to counteract bisphosphonate-induced side effects.

A general framework is proposed without using correspondences, where the solution of a polynomial system of equations directly provides the parameters of the alignment. We quantitatively evaluate the proposed algorithm on a large synthetic dataset containing 2D and 3D images, where linear (rigid-body and affine) transformations are considered. We also conduct an exhaustive analysis of the robustness against segmentation errors and the numerical stability of the proposed method. Moreover, we present experiments on 2D real images as well as on volumetric medical images.

Parallel thinning algorithms can remove a set of object points simultaneously, while sequential algorithms traverse the boundary of objects, and consider the actually visited single point for possible removal. Two thinning algorithms are called equivalent if they produce the same result for each input picture. This paper presents the very first pair of equivalent 2D sequential and parallel subiteration-based thinning algorithms. These algorithms can be implemented directly on a conventional sequential computer or on a parallel computing device. Both of them preserve topology for (8, 4) pictures sampled on the square grid.

vázkijelölo módszer. A legtöbb létezo vékonyító algoritmus végpontok - vagyis releváns geometriai információt hordozó objektumpontok - megorzésével biztosítja azt, hogy ne törlodjenek az objektumok alakját reprezentáló fontos részletek. Ennek a megközelítésnek hátránya, hogy számos nemkívánatos vázágat eredményezhet. Ebben a cikkben egy olyan módszert mutatunk be, amellyel jelentosen csökkentheto a hamis vázágak száma. Ráadásul az itt bemutatott megközelítés tetszoleges végpont-megorzo 2D vékonyító algoritmusban alkalmazható.

The standard method for counting chlamydiae is the immunofluorescent staining and manual counting of chlamydial inclusions. High or medium throughput estimation of the reduction in chlamydia inclusions should be the basis of testing antichlamydial compounds and other drugs that positively or negatively influence chlamydial growth, yet low-throughput manual counting is the common approach. To overcome the time-consuming and subjective manual counting we developed an automatic inclusion counting system based on a commercially available DNA chip scanner. Fluorescently labeled inclusions are detected by the scanner, and the image is processed by ChlamyCount, a custom plugin of the ImageJ software environment. ChlamyCount was able to measure the inclusion counts over a one log dynamic range with high correlation to the theoretical counts. ChlamyCount was capable of accurately determining the minimum inhibitory concentration of the novel antimicrobial compound PCC00213 and the already known antichlamydial antibiotics moxifloxacin and tetracycline. ChlamyCount was also able to measure the chlamydial growth altering effect of drugs that influence host-bacterium interaction such as interferon-gamma, DEAE-dextran and cycloheximide. ChlamyCount is an easily adaptable system for testing antichlamydial antimicrobials and other compounds that influence Chlamydia-host interactions.

Finding the minimal number of 0s that must be switched to 1s in order to eliminate all switching components is an NP-complete problem. We present two novel-type heuristics for the above problems and show via experiments that they outperform the formerly proposed ones, both in optimality and in running time.

This is usually required from a low number of projections, which are also likely to be aﬀected by noise and measurement errors. In general, the distorted and incomplete projection data holds insuﬃcient information for the correct reconstruction of the original object. In this paper, we describe two methods for approximating the local uncertainty of the reconstructions, i.e., identifying how the information stored in the projections determine each part of the reconstructed image. These methods can measure the uncertainty of the reconstruction without any knowledge from the original object itself. Moreover, we provide a global uncertainty measure that can assess the information content of a projection set and predict the error to be expected in the reconstruction of a homogeneous object. We also give an experimental evaluation of our proposed methods, mention some of their possible applications, and describe how the uncertainty measure can be used to improve the performance of the DART reconstruction algorithm.

The reading process of visual codes consists of two steps: localization and data decoding. Unsupervised localization is desirable at industrial setups and for visually impaired people.

The proposed method works without landmark extraction and feature correspondences. The aligning transformation is found simply by solving a system of nonlinear equations. Each equation is generated by integrating a nonlinear function over the object's domains. We derive recursive formulas for the efficient computation of these integrals. Based on a series of comparative tests on a large synthetic dataset, our triangular mesh-based algorithm outperforms state of the art methods both in terms of computing time and accuracy. The applicability of the proposed approach has been demonstrated on the registration of 3D lung CT volumes. © 2013 IEEE.

Sequential reductions may delete just one point at a time, while parallel reductions can alter a set of points simultaneously. Two reductions are called equivalent if they produce the same result for each input picture. This work lays a bridge between the parallel and the sequential strategies. A class of deletion rules are proposed that provide 2D parallel reductions being equivalent to sequential reductions. Some new sufficient conditions for topology-preserving parallel reductions are also reported.

For example, the well- known measures for h-, v-, and hv-convexity of discrete sets in binary tomography pose rigorous criteria to be satisfied. Currently, there is no commonly accepted, unified view on what type of discrete sets should be considered nearly hv-convex, or to what extent a given discrete set can be considered convex, in case it does not satisfy the strict conditions. We propose a novel directional convexity measure for discrete sets based on various properties of the configuration of 0s and 1s in the set. It can be supported by proper theory, is easy to compute, and according to our experiments, it behaves intuitively. We expect it to become a useful alternative to other convexity measures in situations where the classical definitions cannot be used.

Based on the information present in projections that have already been measured, a new projection angle is computed, which aims to maximize the information gained by adding this projection to the set of measurements. The optimization model used for angle selection is based on a characterization of solutions of the binary reconstruction problem, and a related definition of information gain. From this formal model, an algorithm is obtained by several approximation steps. Results from a series of simulation experiments demonstrate that the proposed angle selection scheme is indeed capable of finding angles for which the reconstructed image is much more accurate than for the standard angle selection scheme. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

Different code types and applications impose special problems, so there is a continuous need for solutions with improved performance. Several methods exist for code localization, that are well characterized by accuracy and speed. Particularly, high-speed processing places need reliable automatic barcode localization, e.g. conveyor belts and automated production, where missed detections cause loss of profit. Our goal is to detect automatically, rapidly and accurately the barcode location with the help of extracted image features. We propose a new algorithm variant, that outperforms in both accuracy and efficiency other detectors found in the literature using similar ideas, and also improves on the detection performance in detecting 2D codes compared to our previous algorithm.

Herein, we consider a polynomial deformation model, but our framework can be easily adapted to other common deformations. The basic idea of the proposed method is to set up a system of nonlinear equations whose solution directly provides the parameters of the aligning transformation. Each equation is generated by integrating a nonlinear function over the object's domains. Thus the number of equations is determined by the number of adopted nonlinear functions yielding a flexible mechanism to generate sufficiently many equations. While classical approaches would establish correspondences between the shapes, our method works without landmarks. The efficiency of the proposed approach has been demonstrated on a large synthetic dataset as well as in the context of medical image registration.

In this paper we take a closer look at the difficulty of the problem. We investigate different heuristic reconstruction algorithms of the class, and compare them from the viewpoint of running-time and reconstruction quality. Using a large set of test images of different sizes and with varying number of components, we show that the reconstruction quality can depend not only on the size of the image, but on the number and location of its components, too. We also reveal that the reconstruction time can also be affected by the number of the so-called switching components present in the image.

By the explosion of smartphones equipped with camera modules, many classical computer vision solutions have been adapted to such platforms. Considering the widespread use of various networking options for mobile phones, one can consider a set of smart phones as an ad-hoc camera network, where each camera is equipped with a more and more powerful computing engine in addition to a limited bandwidth communication with other devices. Therefore the performance of classical vision algorithms in a collaborative mobile environment is of particular interest. In such a scenario we expect that the images are taken almost simultaneously but from different viewpoints, implying that the camera poses are significantly different but lighting conditions are the same. In this work, we provide quantitative comparison of the most important keypoint detectors and descriptors in the context of wide baseline stereo matching. We found that for resolution of 2 megapixels images the current mobile hardware is capable of providing results efficiently.

In this case the lack of information results in uncertain parts on the reconstructed image which are not determined by the projections and cannot be reliably reconstructed without additional information. We provide a method that can approximate this local uncertainty of reconstructions, and show how each pixel of the reconstructed image is determined by a set of given projections. We also give experimental results for validating our approach.

Conventional thinning algorithms preserve endpoints to provide important geometric information relative to the object to be represented. An alternative strategy is also proposed that accumulates isthmuses (i.e., generalization of curve and surface interior points as skeletal elements). This paper presents two parallel isthmus-based 3D thinning algorithms that are capable of producing centerlines and medial surfaces. The strategy which is used is called subiteration-based or directional: each iteration step is composed of 12 subiterations each of which are executed in parallel. The proposed algorithms make efficient implementation possible and their topological correctness is guaranteed.

The main challenge is to estimate camera parameters with respect to the 3D scene without any specific calibration pattern, hence allowing for a consistent, camera-independent world coordinate system. The only assumption about the scene is that it contains a planar surface patch of a low-rank texture, which is visible in at least two cameras. Such low-rank patterns are quite common in urban environments. The proposed algorithm consists of three main steps: relative pose estimation of the cameras within the network, followed by the localization of the network within the 3D scene using a low-rank surface patch, and finally the estimation of a consistent scale for the whole system. The algorithm follows a distributed architecture, hence the computing power of the participating mobile devices are efficiently used. The performance and robustness of the proposed algorithm have been analyzed on both synthetic and real data. Experimental results confirmed the relevance and applicability of the method.

Although many image restoration methods can be found in the literature, most of them are developed for grayscale images. In this paper we propose a novel binary image restoration algorithm. As a first step, it restores the projections of the shape using 1-dimensional deconvolution, then reconstructs the image from these projections using a discrete tomography technique. The method does not require any parameter setting or prior knowledge like an estimation of the signal-to-noise ratio. Numerical experiments on a synthetic dataset show that the proposed algorithm is robust to the level of the noise. The efficiency of the method has also been demonstrated on real out-of-focus alphanumeric images.

Various applications of binary image processing rest on topology preserving operators. Earlier studies in this topic mainly concerned with reductions (i.e., operators that only delete some object points from binary images), as they form the basis for thinning algorithms. However, additions (i.e., operators that never change object points) also play important role for the purpose of generating discrete Voronoi diagrams or skeletons by influence zones (SKIZ). Furthermore, the use of general operators that may both add and delete some points to and from objects in pictures are suitable for contour smoothing. Therefore, in this paper we present some new sufficient conditions for topology preserving reductions, additions, and general operators. Two additions for 2D and 3D contour smoothing are also reported.

The proposed method has no specific assumption about the data source: plain depth information is expected from the lidar scan and a simple perspective camera is used for the 2D images. The calibration is solved as a 2D-3D registration problem using a minimum of one (for extrinsic) or two (for intrinsic-extrinsic) planar regions visible in both cameras. The registration is then traced back to the solution of a non-linear system of equations which directly provides the calibration parameters between the bases of the two sensors. The method has been tested on a large set of synthetic lidar-camera image pairs as well as on real data acquired in outdoor environment.

Generally, if just the two projections are given, there can be exponentially many hv-convex 4-connected images satisfying them. Knowing the morphological skeleton in addition, we can reduce the number of solutions. In the studied class, the images are defined by two parameters. We show that the uniqueness of their reconstruction depends only on the values of those parameters.

Conventional thinning algorithms preserve endpoints to provide important geometric information relative to the object to be represented. An alternative strategy is also proposed that preserves isthmuses (i.e., generalization of curve/surface interior points). In this paper we present ten 3D parallel isthmus-based thinning algorithm variants that are derived from some sufficient conditions for topology preserving reductions. ` `

The crosssection

images are constructed with the aid of the object’s projections. It is often necessary to

minimize the number of those projections to avoid the damage or destruction of the examined

object, since in most cases the projections are made by destructive rays.

Sometimes the number of available projections are so small that conventional methods cannot

provide satisfactory results. In these cases Discrete Tomograpy can provide acceptable solutions,

but it can only be used with the assumption the object is made of only a few materials,

thus only a small number of intensity values appear in the reconstructed cross-section image.

Although there are a lot of discrete tomographic reconstruction algorithms, only a few papers

deal with the determination of intensity values of the image, in advance. In our work we

try to fill this gap by using different learning methods. During the learning and classification

we used the projection values as input arguments.

In the second part of our talk we concentrate on Binary Tomography (a special kind of Discrete

Tomography)where it is supposed that the object is composed of onematerial. Thus, there

can be only two intensities on the cross-section image - one for the object points and one for

the background. Here, we compared our earlier presented binary tomographic evolutionary

reconstruction algorithm to two others. We present the details of the above-mentioned reconstruction

method and our experimental results. This paper is based on our previous works.

In this work, we examine ensemble efficiency of those simple detectors using various aggregation methods. Using a combination of several simple features localization performance improves significantly.

Sequential thinning algorithms usually suffer from the drawback of being order-dependent, i.e., their results depend on the visiting order of object points. Earlier order-independent sequential methods are based on the conventional thinning schemes that preserve endpoints to provide relevant geometric information of objects. These algorithms can generate centerlines in 2D and medial surfaces in 3D. This paper presents an alternative strategy for order-independent thinning which follows an approach, proposed by Bertrand and Couprie, which accumulates so-called isthmus points. The main advantage of this order-independent strategy over the earlier ones is that it makes also possible to produce centerlines of 3D objects.

The model can be used as a prior for object extraction whenever the objects conform to the `gas of circles' geometry, e.g. cells in biological images. Configurations are represented by a multi-layer phase field. Each layer has an associated function, regions being defined by thresholding. Intra-layer interactions assign low energy to configurations consisting of non-overlapping near-circular regions, while overlapping regions are represented in separate layers. Inter-layer interactions penalize overlaps. Here we present a theoretical and experimental analysis of the model.

Herein, we trace back the problem to the solution of a system of nonlinear equations which directly gives the parameters of the aligning transformation. The proposed method provides a generic framework to recover any diffeomorphic deformation without established correspondences. It is easy to implement, not sensitive to the strength of the deformation, and robust against segmentation errors. The method has been applied to several commonly used transformation models. The performance of the proposed framework has been demonstrated on large synthetic data sets as well as in the context of various applications.

The different types of codes and applications impose special problems, so there is a continuous need for solutions with improved effectiveness. There are several methods for barcode localization, that are well characterized by accuracy and speed. Particularly, high-speed processing places need automatic barcode localization, e.g. conveyor belts, automated production, where missed detections cause loss of profit. In this paper, we mainly deal with segmentation of images with 1D barcode, but also analyze the operation of different methods for 2D barcode images as well. Our goal is to detect automatically, rapidly and accurately the barcode location by the help of extracted features. We compare some published method from the literature, which basically rely on the contrast between the background and the shape that represent the code. We also propose a novel algorithm, that outperforms the others in both accuracy and efficiency in detecting 1D codes.

Most of them have the disadvantage of order-dependence, i.e., for dissimilar visiting orders of object points, they may generate different skeletons. In this work, we give a survey of our results on order-independent thinning: we introduce some sequential algorithms that produce identical skeletons for any visiting orders, and we also present some sufficient conditions for the order-independence of templatebased sequential algorithms.

Parametric stochastic models offer the definition of color and/or texture features based on model parameters, which is of interest for color texture classification, segmentation and synthesis.

In this chapter, distribution of colors in the images through various parametric approximations including multivariate Gaussian distribution, multivariate Gaussian mixture models (MGMM) and Wishart distribution, is discussed. In the context of Bayesian color image segmentation, various aspects of sampling from the posterior distributions to estimate the color distribution from MGMM and the label field, using different move types are also discussed. These include reversible jump mechanism from MCMC methodology. Experimental results on color images are presented and discussed.

Then, we give some materials for the description of color spatial structure using Markov Random Fields (MRF), and more particularly multichannel GMRF, and multichannel linear prediction models. In this last approach, two dimensional complex multichannel versions of both causal and non-causal models are discussed to perform the simultaneous parametric power spectrum estimation of the luminance and the chrominance channels of the color image. Application of these models to the classification and segmentation of color texture images is also illustrated.

The key idea is to construct enough linearly independent equations using covariant functions, and then finding the solution simultaneously for all affine transformations. Quantitative evaluation confirms the performance of the method.

The registration method involves spectral clustering of the deformation parameters obtained from a spline-based nonlinear diffeomorphism between training magnetic resonance and ultrasound prostate images. The deformation models built from the principal eigen-modes of the clusters are then applied on a test magnetic resonance image to register with the test ultrasound prostate image. The deformation model with the least registration error is finally chosen as the optimal model for deformable registration. The rationale behind modeling deformations is to achieve fast multimodal registration of prostate images while maintaining registration accuracies which is otherwise computationally expensive. The method is validated for 25 patients each with a pair of corresponding magnetic resonance and ultrasound images in a leave-one-out validation framework. The average registration accuracies i.e. Dice similarity coefficient of 0.927 ± 0.025, 95% Hausdorff distance of 5.14 ± 3.67 mm and target registration error of 2.44 ± 1.17 mm are obtained by our method with a speed-up in computation time by 98% when compared to Mitra et al. [7].

The segmented prostate shapes are represented by shape-contexts and the Bhattacharyya distance between the shape representations is used to find the point correspondences between the 2D fixed and moving images. The registration method involves parametric estimation of the non-linear diffeomorphism between the multimodal images and has its basis in solving a set of non-linear equations of thin-plate splines. The solution is obtained as the least-squares solution of an over-determined system of non-linear equations constructed by integrating a set of non-linear functions over the fixed and moving images. However, this may not result in clinically acceptable transformations of the anatomical targets. Therefore, the regularized bending energy of the thin-plate splines along with the localization error of established correspondences should be included in the system of equations. The registration accuracies of the proposed method are evaluated in 20 pairs of prostate mid-gland ultrasound and magnetic resonance images. The results obtained in terms of Dice similarity coefficient show an average of 0.980+/-0.004, average 95% Hausdorff distance of 1.63+/-0.48mm and mean target registration and target localization errors of 1.60+/-1.17mm and 0.15+/-0.12mm respectively.

The classical way to solve this registration problem is to find correspondences between the two images and then compute the transformation parameters from these landmarks. Here we propose a unified framework where the exact transformation is obtained as the solution of either a polynomial or a linear system of equations without establishing correspondences. The advantages of the proposed solutions are that they are fast, easy to implement, have linear time complexity, work without landmark correspondences and are independent of the magnitude of transformation.

The basic idea is to set up a system of nonlinear equations whose solution directly provides the parameters of the aligning transformation. Each equation is generated by integrating a nonlinear function over the object's domains. Thus the number of equations is determined by the number of adopted nonlinear functions yielding a flexible mechanism to generate sufficiently many equations. While classical approaches would establish correspondences between the shapes, our method works without landmarks. Experiments with 3D polynomial and thin plate spline deformations confirm the performance of the framework.

A technique to obtain skeletons is the thinning, that is an iterative layer-by-layer erosion in a topology-preserving way. Conventional thinning algorithms preserve line endpoints to provide important geometric information relative to the object to be represented. Bertrand and Couprie proposed an alternative strategy by accumulating isthmus points that are line interior points. In this paper we present six new 2D parallel thinning algorithms that are derived from some sufficient conditions for topology preserving reductions and based on isthmus-preservation.

The major contributions of this paper are: 1) Some new sufficient conditions for topology preserving parallel reductions are introduced. 2) A new 6-subiteration thinning scheme is proposed. Its topological correctness is guaranteed, since its deletion rules are derived from our sufficient conditions for topology preservation. 3) The proposed thinning scheme with different characterizations of endpoints yields various new algorithms for extracting centerlines and medial surfaces from 3D binary pictures. © 2011 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

The parametric estimation of the non-linear diffeomorphism between the 2D fixed and moving images has its basis in solving a set of non-linear equations of thin-plate splines. The regularized bending energy of the thin-plate splines along with the localization error of established correspondences is jointly minimized with the fixed and transformed image difference, where, the transformed image is represented by the set of non-linear equations defined over the moving image. The traditional thin-plate splines with established correspondences may provide good registration of the anatomical targets inside the prostate but may fail to provide improved contour registration. On the contrary, the proposed framework maintains the accuracy of registration in terms of overlap due to the non-linear thinplate spline functions while also producing smooth deformations of the anatomical structures inside the prostate as a result of established corrspondences. The registration accuracies of the proposed method are evaluated in 20 pairs of prostate midgland ultrasound and magnetic resonance images in terms of Dice similarity coefficient with an average of 0.982 ± 0.004, average 95% Hausdorff distance of 1.54 ± 0.46 mm and mean target registration and target localization errors of 1.90±1.27 mm and 0.15 ± 0.12 mm respectively. © 2011 IEEE.

This paper introduces a novel sequential thinning approach for n-dimensional binary objects (*n* =1,2,3, ...). Its main strength lies in its order--independency, i.e., it can produce the same skeletons for any visiting orders of border points. Furthermore, this is the first scheme in this field that is also applicable for higher dimensions.

In this contribution we summarize and extend the previous results by explaining and demonstrating tile effects of projection selection dependency, in a set of experimental software tests. We perform reconstructions of software phantoms, by using different binary tomography reconstruction algorithms, from different equiangular and non-equiangular projections sets, under various conditions (i.e., when the objects to be reconstructed undergo slight topological changes, or the projection data is affected by noise) and compare the results with suitable approaches. Based on our observations, we reveal regularities in the resulting data and discuss possible consequences of such projection selection dependency in binary tomography.

We consider linear transformations between the object fragments and present the method through 2D and 3D affine transformations. The basic idea is to construct and solve a polynomial system of equations which provides the unknown parameters of the alignment. We have quantitatively evaluated the proposed algorithm on a large synthetic dataset containing 2D and 3D images. The results show that the method performs well and robust against segmentation errors. We also present experiments on 2D real images as well as on volumetric medical images applied to surgical planning. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.

We utilize voxel coverage information for more precise object boundary description. An iterative solution enables us to easily adjust the method to recover e.g. rigid-body and similarity transformations. Synthetic tests show the advantage of the voxel coverage representation, and reveal the robustness properties of our method against different types of segmentation errors.

Because revitalization of the degenerated nerve fibers of the optic nerve is impossible early detection of the disease is essential. This can be supported by a robust and automated mass-screening. We propose a novel automated glaucoma detection system that operates on inexpensive to acquire and widely used digital color fundus images. After a glaucoma specific preprocessing, different generic feature types are compressed by an appearance-based dimension reduction technique. Subsequently, a probabilistic two-stage classification scheme combines these features types to extract the novel Glaucoma Risk Index (GRI) that shows a reasonable glaucoma detection performance. On a sample set of 575 fundus images a classification accuracy of 80% has been achieved in a 5-fold cross-validation setup. The GRI gains a competitive area under ROC (AUC) of 88% compared to the established topography- based glaucoma probability score of scanning laser tomography with AUC of 87%. The proposed color fundus image-based GRI achieves a competitive and reliable detection performance on a low-priced modality by the statistical analysis of entire images of the optic nerve head.

We present an extensive study by applying filters of different sizes and in various times of the reconstruction process. Also, our test images are of different structural complexity. Our study concentrates on the ART and its discrete variant DART reconstruction methods.

The basic idea is to fit Gaussian densities over the objects yielding covariant functions, which preserves the effect of the unknown transformation. Based on these functions, linear equations are constructed by integrating nonlinear functions over appropriate domains. The main advantages are: linear complexity, easy implementation, works without any time consuming optimization or established correspondences.

KacAug 2009 a1251 - 12650 v283 aThis paper presents a comparison study between 10 automatic and six interactive methods for liver segmentation from contrast-enhanced CT images. It is based on results from the "MICCAI 2007 Grand Challenge" workshop, where 16 teams evaluated their algorithms on a common database. A collection of 20 clinical images with reference segmentations was provided to train and tune algorithms in advance. Participants were also allowed to use additional proprietary training data for that purpose. All teams then had to apply their methods to 10 test datasets and submit the obtained results. Employed algorithms include statistical shape models, atlas registration, level-sets, graph-cuts and rule-based systems. All results were compared to reference segmentations five error measures that highlight different aspects of segmentation accuracy. All measures were combined according to a specific scoring system relating the obtained values to human expert variability. In general, interactive methods reached higher average scores than automatic approaches and featured a better consistency of segmentation quality. However, the best automatic methods (mainly based on statistical shape models with some additional free deformation) could compete well on the majority of test images. The study provides an insight in performance of different segmentation approaches under real-world conditions and highlights achievements and limitations of current image analysis techniques. © 2009 IEEE.

Quantitative glaucoma scores, however, do not utilize both image content simultaneously. We propose the combination of topography and fundus image based indices for automated glaucoma detection which outperforms their sole application of either. Methods:The probabilistic values of topography based Glaucoma Probability Score (GPS) and our fundus image based Glaucoma Risk Index (GRI) are assembled to a two-dimensional feature space. In contrast to established methods the subsequent application of a probabilistic nu-Support Vector Machine classifier (nu = 0.5, kernel: radial basis function) uses both the topographic and the textural information to determine a final glaucoma probability. Instances labeled with a final probability greater than 0.5 are considered glaucomatous.For the evaluations in a 10-fold cross- validation setup, we took a sample set (mean age: 55.4 ± 10.9 years) of papilla images of 149 glaucomatous patients (FDT test time 67.4 ± 35.6 s) and 246 normals from the Erlangen Glaucoma Registry. The gold standard diagnosis was given by a glaucoma specialist based on an elaborate ophthalmological examination with ophthalmoscopy, visual field, IOP, FDT, and HRT II. The GPS was calculated by HRT device while papilla centered color fundus images (Kowa non-myd, FOV 22°) were used to calculate the GRI. Results:The classification of the GRI resulted in an area under ROC curve (AUC) of 0.81 with an F-measure of 0.71 for glaucomatous cases and 0.83 for normals. The GPS achieved an AUC of 0.86 while the F-measure for glaucoma was 0.74 (F-measure for healthy was 0.84).The combination of both indices clearly increased the AUC by 4% up to 0.9 compared to the sole application of the GPS. The F-measure for glaucomatous images was improved up to 0.76 (F-measure for healthy images was 0.86). Conclusions:The proposed combination of the topography based GPS and the fundus image based GRI shows superior performance compared to either index alone.Both indices utilize complementary information about the glaucoma disease. Consequently, this multimodal combined application of both indices is promising to reach a more reliable automated glaucoma detection performance. The approach can be used in large screening applications where an automated tool is essential to support the experts in finding glaucomatous eyes.

Classical approaches usually define a cost function based on a similarity metric and then find the solution via optimization. Herein, we trace back the problem to the solution of a system of non-linear equations which directly provides the parameters of the aligning transformation. The proposed method works without any time consuming optimization step or established correspondences. The advantage of our algorithm is that it is easy to implement, less sensitive to the strength of the deformation, and robust against segmentation errors. The efficiency of the proposed approach has been demonstrated on a large synthetic dataset as well as in the context of an industrial application. ©2009 IEEE.

Moreover we introduce custom weight functions based on object properties. Thus, wecan be more specific on what are the important parts of the subsampled object. We also list several novel applications corresponding to the theoretical achivements presented. The advantages of applying the subsampling strategies are presented for registration, human detection, and the segmentation of the retinal vascular system, respectively.

We also make comparisons with other naive (e.g. random) subsampling methods.

Automatic retina image analysis is becoming an important screening tool for early detection of certain risks and diseases. Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of blindness and is becoming even more important considering the ageing society. Robust mass-screening may help to extend the symptom-free life of affected patients. Our research is focused on a novel automated classification system for glaucoma, based on image features from fundus photographs. Our new data-driven approach requires no manual assistance and does not depend on explicit structure segmentation and measurements. First, disease independent variations, such as nonuniform illumination, size differences, and blood vessels are eliminated from the images. Then, the extracted high-dimensional feature vectors are compressed via PCA and combined before classification with SVMs takes place. The technique achieves an accuracy of detecting glaucomatous retina fundus images comparable to that of human experts. The “vessel- free” images and intermediate output of the methods are novel representations of the data for the physicians that may provide new insight into and help to better understand glaucoma.

The computer aided surgical planning is done before the actual surgery takes place and its main purpose is to gather more information about the dislocation of the bone fragments and to arrange the surgical implants to be inserted. With the help of finite element analysis even the biomechanical stability of the whole plan can be predicted. To create such a plan the following steps are performed. First, the CT dataset of the patient is segmented [1], which enables us to treat the different bones and broken fragments separately. Next the surface of this volumetric dataset is determined [2] and presented in a 3D environment. Since the fragments may have moved during the fracture, it is essential to move and rotate them back to their original anatomic position. Without this reduction, no implants can be inserted, since the final locations of the fragments are unknown. Previous solutions to the fracture reduction problem included moving the fragments with the mouse, or a special 3D haptic device. The former is not intuitive to use since the mouse is only 2D, and the later is expensive and still requires learning. ` `

One of the main difficulties in this task is that in certain cases the projections do not uniquely determine the binary matrix. This can yield an extremely large number of (sometimes very different) solutions. This ambiguity can be reduced by having some prior knowledge about the matrix to be reconstructed. The main challenge here is to find classes of binary matrices where ambiguity is drastically reduced or even completely eliminated. The goal of this paper is to study the class of $hv$-convex matrices which have decomposable configurations from the viewpoint of ambiguity. First, we give a negative result in the case of three projections. Then, we present a heuristic for the reconstruction using four projections and analyze its performance in quality and running time.`

Methods:A pre-processing step eliminates certain disease independent variations such as illumination inhomogeneities, papilla size differences and vessel structures from the input images. In order to characterize glaucomatous changes, generic feature types (pixel intensities, frequency coefficients, histogram parameters, Gabor textures, spline coefficients) are extracted. In contrast to existing approaches, each feature vector is compressed by Principal Component Analysis. The classification of the transformed features is done by a state- of-the-art nu-Support Vector Machine.For the elaborate experimental evaluation of the proposed system architecture we took a large set of papilla-centered color fundus images of 100 glaucoma patients (FDT test time 67.25 ± 33.4 s) and 100 normals (overall mean age 57.0 ± 10.0 years) from the Erlangen Glaucoma Registry (Kowa non-myd, FOV 22,5°). The gold standard was given by an experienced ophthalmologist based on a complete ophthalmological examination with ophthalmoscopy, visual field, IOP, FDT, and HRT II. Results:Classification of compressed raw pixel intensities gained a success rate of 83% with a specificity of 0.72 and a sensitivity of 0.94 to detect glaucomatous cases. A success rate of 86% was achieved by using spline coefficients with a specificity of 0.78 and a sensitivity of 0.94 to detect glaucoma. The combination of both features slightly increased specificity to 0.82 (sensitivity = 0.92). The kappa statistic of 0.74 states a robust classification scheme. Conclusions:The proposed algorithm achieves a robust and competitive glaucoma detection rate. It is comparable to known methods applied to topographic papilla images and does not depend on segmentation-based measurements. For the first time, automated glaucoma detection is performed on color fundus images. Thus, fundus photography is an appropriate modality for computer-assisted glaucoma screening.

The classical way to solve this registration problem is to find correspondences between the two images and then compute the transformation parameters from these landmarks. In this paper, we propose a novel approach where the exact transformation is obtained as a least-squares solution of a linear system. The basic idea is to fit a Gaussian density to the shapes which preserves the effect of the unknown transformation. It can also be regarded as a consistent coloring of the shapes yielding two rich functions defined over the two shapes to be matched. The advantage of the proposed solution is that it is fast, easy to implement, works without established correspondences and provides a unique and exact solution regardless of the magnitude of transformation. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

In order to choose the appropriate reconstruction algorithm it is necessary to have a priori information of the image to be reconstructed. In this way we can improve the speed and reduce the ambiguity of the reconstruction. Our work is concerned with the problem of retrieving geometrical information from the projections themselves. We investigate whether it is possible to determine geometric features of binary images if only their projections are known. Most of the reconstruction algorithms based on geometrical information suppose $hv$-convexity or connectedness about the image to be reconstructed. We investigate those properties in detail, and also the task of separating 4- and 8-connected images. We suggest decision trees for the classification, and show some preliminary experimental results of applying them for the class of $hv$-convex and connected discrete sets. ` `

Methods:We present a new matrix visualization technique for digital optic nerve head images. The matrix is filled with 300 pre-diagnosed reference images which show different papilla sizes and varying stages of glaucoma disease. In matrix rows the samples range from healthy ones to advanced glaucoma cases. In matrix columns the papillas are ordered by the size of the optic nerve head. The approach generalizes such that the samples can be ordered by additional criteria, too, e. g. subjects' age or anamnestic risk factors. Furthermore arbitrary image modalities and image numbers can be incorporated. Results:The glaucoma classification of a single image is difficult even for experts. Our proposed visualization provides an intuitive way for neighborhood comparisons of optic nerve head images. It allows to evaluate an image in the context of given pre-diagnosed reference samples. By the two-dimensional presentation one can study disease-dependent changes separate from other variations. Glaucoma progression can be observed separated from size variations. Thus, it supports diagnosis even in problematic cases such as macropapillas. The trustworthiness of physicians' diagnosis can be improved. Conclusions:Our approach gives insights on glaucomatous optic nerve appearance in relation to varying papilla sizes. The novel visualization of a single image within the context of other images is considered as an important tool for learning and training medical glaucoma detection. This approach visualizes computer calculated risk estimations by presenting the result within context of given gold-standard images. In contrast to pure classification systems our method does not come up with a hard decision but explains the relationship to similar pre- diagnosed cases.

Screening is adequate to detect glaucoma at an early stage. Although it is supported by computer assisted tools no further information from former clinical studies is incorporated.

Automated computation of a glaucoma risk index on color fundus photographs is used to initially position an undiagnosed image in reference data. The index achieves a competitive glaucoma detection rate. The combination of the automated risk index and the new visualization technique is an important tool towards a faster and more reliable diagnosis of glaucoma.

Assuming that the set to be reconstructed fulfills some geometrical properties is a commonly used technique to reduce the number of possibly many different solutions of the same reconstruction problem. The class of hv-convex discrete sets and its subclasses have a well-developed theory. Several reconstruction algorithms as well as some complexity results are known for those classes. The key to achieve polynomial-time reconstruction of an hv- convex discrete set is to have the additional assumption that the set is connected as well. This paper collects several statistics on hv-convex discrete sets, which are of great importance in the analysis of algorithms for reconstructing such kind of discrete sets. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

In addition, colorectal cancer is responsible for about 11% of all new cancer cases per year (Gazelle et al. 2000). Five-year prognosis is about 90% for patients with localized disease compared to 60% if there is a regional spread and a drop to 10% in patients with distant metastasis (Gazelle et al. 2000). In the field of medicine there is a widely accepted opinion that most colorectal cancers arise from pre-existent adenomatous polyps (Johnson 2000). Therefore, different societies, such as the American Cancer Society, have proposed screening for colorectal cancer (Byers et al. 1997; Winawer et al. 1997). Today, different options exist for detection of colorectal cancer, including digital rectal examination, fecal occult blood testing, flexible and rigid sigmoidoscopy, barium enema and its variants, colonoscopy and recently computed tomography or magnetic resonance-based virtual colonography (Gazelle et al. 2000).

Manual segmentation of these organs is very time-consuming, therefore automated methods are desired. We developed a semi-automatic segmentation method to outline liver, spleen and kidneys. It works on CT images without contrast intake that are acquired with a routine clinical protocol. From an initial surface around a user defined seed point, the segmentation of the organ is obtained by an active surface algorithm. Pre- and post-processing steps are used to adapt the general method for specific organs. The evaluation results show that the accuracy of our method is about 90%, which can be further improved with little manual editing, and that the precision is slightly higher than that of manual contouring. Our method is accurate, precise and fast enough to use in the clinical practice.

The Principal Component Analysis is applied on intensity values of the illumination corrected green channel of fundus images. The algorithm does not use segmentation, is robust and shows a high range of reliability. It identiﬁed an age-related feature with a strong inﬂuence of the temporal parapapillary area and the optic nerve head. The feature correlates with chronological age of the participants and is signiﬁcantly inﬂuenced by the appearance of cardiovascular risk factors such as smoking and hypertension, and thus it can be designated a biomarker. We extract and validate a medical parameter from retina images applying a purely data-driven approach without using any prior knowledge.

Because healing of died retinal nerve fibers is not possible early detection and prevention is essential. Robust, automated mass-screening will help to extend the symptom-free life of affected patients. We devised a novel, automated, appearance based glaucoma classification system that does not depend on segmentation based measurements. Our purely data-driven approach is applicable in large-scale screening examinations. It applies a standard pattern recognition pipeline with a 2-stage classification step. Several types of image-based features were analyzed and are combined to capture glaucomatous structures. Certain disease independent variations such as illumination inhomogeneities, size differences, and vessel structures are eliminated in the preprocessing phase. The “vessel-free” images and intermediate results of the methods are novel representations of the data for the physicians that may provide new insight into and help to better understand glaucoma. Our system achieves 86 % success rate on a data set containing a mixture of 200 real images of healthy and glaucomatous eyes. The performance of the system is comparable to human medical experts in detecting glaucomatous retina fundus images.

In practice, contour maps are scanned and vectorized, and after resampling in the target grid resolution, interpolation is performed. In this paper we demonstrate the limited accuracy of this process, and propose a high‐resolution processing method (without vectorization) that ensures maximum utilization of information in the source data. First, we discuss the mathematical background of thin plate spline interpolation, and explain the multigrid relaxation principle used to speed up convergence. After, we will show why fine tuning is necessary, especially when contour lines and elevation points are processed at the same time. Finally, our own contour thinning method that produces a significant reduction of elevation bias is described.

Several efficient reconstruction algorithms have been developed for certain classes of discrete sets having some good geometrical properties. On the other hand, it has been shown that the reconstruction under certain circumstances can be very time-consuming, even NP-hard. In this chapter we show how prior information that the set to be reconstructed consists of several components can be exploited in order to facilitate the reconstruction. We present some general techniques to decompose a discrete set into components knowing only its projections and thus reduce the reconstruction of a general discrete set to the reconstruction of single components, which is usually a simpler task.

It is also shown that an arbitrary discrete set which is Q-convex along the horizontal and vertical directions and consists of several components is decomposable. As a consequence of decomposability we get that in a subclass of *hv*-convex discrete sets the reconstruction from four projections can also be solved in polynomial time. Possible extensions of our method are also discussed.

In many cases, the objects consist of known materials, and a lot of a priori information is available (e.g., the description of an ideal object, which is similar to the actual one under investigation). One of the frequently used methods in NDT is to take projection images of the objects by some transmitting ray (e.g., X- or neutron-ray) and reconstruct the cross sections. But it can happen that only a few number of projections can be collected, because of long and/or expensive data acquisition, or the projections can be collected only from a limited range of directions. The chapter describes two DT reconstruction methods used in NDT experiments, shows the results of a DT procedure applied in the reconstruction of oblong objects having projections only from a limited range of angles, and, finally, suggests a few further possible NDT applications of DT.

Our research is focused on a novel automated classification system based on image features from fundus photographs which does not depend on structure segmentation or prior expert knowledge. Our new data driven approach that needs no manual assistance achieves an accuracy of detecting glaucomatous retina fundus images compareable to human experts. In this paper, we study image preprocessing methods to provide better input for more reliable automated glaucoma detection. We reduce disease independent variations without removing information that discriminates between images of healthy and glaucomatous eyes. In particular, nonuniform illumination is corrected, blood vessels are inpainted and the region of interest is normalized before feature extraction and subsequent classification. The effect of these steps was evaluated using principal component analysis for dimension reduction and support vector machine as classifier.

The first problem is the reconstruction of measurable plane sets from two absorbed projections. It is shown that Lorentz theorems can be generalized to this case. The second is the reconstruction of binary matrices from their absorbed row and columns sums if the absorption coefficient is μ0 = log((1+v^{/}5)/2). It is proved that the reconstruction in this case can be done in polynomial time. Finally, a possible application of EDT in single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is presented: Dynamic structures are reconstructed after factor analysis.

Methods:Sixty-five men (age, 44.2 ± 11.4 years) and 60 women (age, 48.8 ± 12.6 years) without cardiovascular risk factors and without pathologic eye diagnosis were acquired during a clinical non-experimental cross-sectional survey and represented the control group. Forty-four hypertensive men (age, 45.5 ± 9.4 years; hypertensive for 5.9 ± 6.7 years) and 26 hypertensive women (age, 51.2 ± 7.3 years; hypertensive for 7.9 ± 7.1 years) as well as 57 male smokers (age, 41.8 ± 8.5 years; smoking for 20.6 ± 9.8 years; 15.3 ± 8.6 cigarettes per day) and 60 female smokers (age, 43.2 ± 9.5 years; smoking for 20.1 ± 10.7 years; 13.5 ± 8.1 cigarettes per day) were matched for age and sex to the respective number of control subjects. Results:The reliability of the algorithm was 0.958. The retinal biomarker correlated with age (men, -0.284, p = 0.017; women, -0.374, p = 0.001). Smokers showed a lower biomarker value (male, -0.16 ± 1.29; female, -0.12 ± 0.11) than age-matched control subjects (male, 0.72 ± 0.92, p < 0.001; female, 0.24 ± 0.98, p = 0.048). Hypertension had a similar influence to the biomarker in men (0.10 ± 0.84), but not in women (-0.46 ± 1.23) as compared to age-matched controls (male, 0.57 ± 0.95, p = 0.01; female, 0.06 ± 0.99, p = 0.09). Conclusions:The algorithm of the appearance-based version of the Principal Component Analysis identified an age-related image feature dependent on light intensity with a strong influence to the temporal parapapillary area. It may be used to identify patients at cardiovascular risk.

Assuming that the set to be reconstructed fulfils some geometrical properties is a commonly used technique to reduce the number of possibly many different solutions of the same reconstruction problem. Since the reconstruction from two projections in the class of so-called hv-convex sets is NP-hard this class is suitable to test the efficiency of newly developed reconstruction algorithms. However, until now no method was known to generate sets of this class from uniform random distribution and thus only ad hoc comparison of several reconstruction techniques was possible. In this paper we first describe a method to generate some special hv-convex discrete sets from uniform random distribution. Moreover, we show that the developed generation technique can easily be adapted to other classes of discrete sets, even for the whole class of hv- convexes. Several statistics are also presented which are of great importance in the analysis of algorithms for reconstructing hv-convex sets. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.

The main challenge in this task is that in certain cases the projections do not uniquely determine the binary image. This can yield an extremely large number of (sometimes very different) solutions. Moreover, under certain circumstances the reconstruction becomes NP-hard. A commonly used technique to reduce ambiguity and to avoid intractability is to suppose that the image to be reconstructed arises from a certain class of images having some geometrical properties. This paper studies the reconstruction problem in the class of hv-convex images having their components in so-called decomposable configurations. First, we give a negative result showing that there can be exponentially many images of the above class having the same three projections. Then, we present a heuristic that uses four projections to reconstruct an hv-convex image with decomposable configuration. We also analyze the performance of our heuristic from the viewpoints of accuracy and running time.

This paper introduces a software tool to plan a surgical intervention and to calculate the biomechanical stability of the plan. The proposed system provides 3D movement and rotation of the bone fragments and the insertion of fixation screws and plates. Finite element analysis is used to calculate mechanical stability of the surgical plan. Using these results the surgeon is able to see the week points of the fixation before the surgery. He can even try several surgical plans to pick the most promising one. ` `

This article deals with the correction of inter volume intensity differences that lead to a missing anatomical meaning of the observed gray values. We present a method for MRI intensity standardization of whole body MRI scans. The approach is based on the alignment of a learned reference and the current histogram. Each of these histograms is at least 2-d and represents two or more MRI sequences (e.g., T1- and T2-weighted images). From the matching a non-linear correction function is gained which describes a mapping between the intensity spaces and consequently adapts the image statistics to a known standard. As the proposed intensity standardization is based on the statistics of the data sets only, it is independent from spatial coherences or prior segmentations of the reference and newly acquired images. Furthermore, it is not designed for a particular application, body region or acquisition protocol. The method was evaluated on whole body MRI scans containing data sets acquired by T1/FL2D and T2/TIRM sequences. In order to demonstrate the applicability, examples from noisy and pathological image series acquired on a whole body MRI scanner are given.

The method uses the recently introduced 'higher order active contours' (HOACs), which incorporate long-range interactions between contour points, and thereby include prior geometric information without using a template shape. This makes them ideal when looking for multiple instances of an entity in an image. We study an existing HOAC model for networks, and show via a stability calculation that circles stable to perturbations are possible for constrained parameter sets. Combining this prior energy with a data term, we show results on aerial imagery that demonstrate the effectiveness of the method and the need for prior geometric knowledge. The model has many other potential applications. ` `

They reconstruct cross-sections from projection images of the object being investigated. Due to the properties of the image acquisition system, the projection images are distorted by several artifacts, and these reduce the quality of the reconstruction. In order to eliminate these harmful effects the projection images should be corrected before reconstruction. Taking projections is usually an expensive and time consuming procedure. One of our main goals has been to try to minimize the number of projections - for example, by exploiting more a priori information. A possible way of reducing the number of projections is by the application of discrete tomographic methods. In this case a special class of objects can be reconstructed, consisting of only a few homogenous materials that can be characterized by known discrete absorption values. To this end we have implemented two reconstruction methods. One is able to reconstruct objects consisting of cylinders and spheres made of homogeneous materials only. The other method is a general one in the sense that it can be used for reconstructing any shape. Simulations on phantoms and physical measurements were carried out and the results are presented here. ` `

The reconstruction methods in DT are different from the conventional ones, because the created images may contain only a few numbers of given discrete values. One of the main reasons to apply DT is that hopefully we need only a few numbers of projections. In many applications we have a situation where we know the material components of the object to be studied, that is, we know the discrete values of the image to be reconstructed. Using discreteness and some a priori information we can apply several DT methods in neutron imaging. Most of the DT reconstruction methods are reducing the problem to an optimization task. We tried two such methods on software and physical phantoms. In these experiments we investigated the effects of the following parameters: number of projections, noise levels, and complexity of the object to be reconstructed. We also developed a software system, called DIRECT, for testing different DT methods, to compare them and to present the reconstructed objects. ` `

A special case of this problem is discussed, namely, the uniqueness of the binary matrices with respect to their absorbed row and column sums when the absorption coefficient is n=log((1+5^0.5)/2). It is proved that if a binary matrix contains a special structure of 0s and 1s, called alternatively corner-connected component, then this binary matrix is non-unique with respect to its absorbed row and column sums. Since it has been proved in another paper [A. Kuba, M. Nivat, Reconstruction of discrete sets with absorption, Linear Algebra Appl. 339 (2001) 171194] that this condition is also necessary, the existence of alternatively corner-connected component in a binary matrix gives a characterization of the non-uniqueness in this case of absorbed projections. ` `

Demonstration of a technique for 3D assessment of tracheal stenoses, regarding site, length and degree, based on spiral computed tomography (S-CT).

### Patients and Methods

S-CT scanning and automated segmentation of the laryngo-tracheal tract (LTT) was followed by the extraction of the LTT medial axis using a skeletonisation algorithm. Orthogonal to the medial axis the LTT 3D cross sectional profile was computed and presented as line charts, where degree and length were obtained. Values for both parameters were compared between 36 patients and 18 normal controls separately. Accuracy and precision was derived from 17 phantom studies.

### Results

Average degree and length of tracheal stenoses were found to be 60.5% and 4.32 cm in patients compared to minor caliber changes of 8.8% and 2.31 cm in normal controls (p <0.005). For the phantoms an excellent correlation between the true and computed 3D cross sectional profile was found (p <0.005) and an accuray for length and degree measurements of 2.14 mm and 2.53% respectively could be determined. The corresponding figures for the precision were found to be 0.92 mm and 2.56%.

### Conclusion

LTT 3D cross sectional profiles permit objective, accurate and precise assessment of LTT caliber changes. Minor LTT caliber changes can be observed even in normals and, in case of an otherwise normal S-CT study, can be regarded as artefacts.

The reconstruction algorithms and complexity results are summarized in the case of hv-convex sets, hv-convex 8-connected sets, hv-convex polyominoes, and directed h-convex sets. As new results some properties of the feet and spines of the hv-convex 8-connected sets are proven and it is shown that the spine of such a set can be determined from the projections in linear time. Two algorithms are given to reconstruct hv-convex 8-connected sets. Finally, it is shown that the directed h-convex sets are uniquely reconstructible with respect to their row and column sum vectors. ` `

This paper presents an efficient 3D parallel shrinking algorithm for transforming a binary object into its topological kernel. The applied strategy is called directional: each iteration step is composed of six subiterations each of which can be executed in parallel. The algorithm makes easy implementation possible, since deletable points are given by 3x3x3 matching templates. The topological correctness of the algorithm is proved for (26,6) binary pictures. ` `

We show that the algorithm of the paper [Int. J. Imaging Systems and Technol. 9 (1998) 69] is a good heuristic algorithm but it does not solve the problem for all (H,V) instances. We propose a modification of this algorithm solving the problem for all (H,V) instances, by starting to build the ``spine''. The complexity of our reconstruction algorithm is O(mnˇlog(mn)ˇmin{m2,n2}) in the worst case. However, according to our experimental results, in 99% of the studied cases the algorithm is able to reconstruct a solution without using the newly introduced operation. In such cases the upper bound of the complexity of the algorithm is O(mnˇlog(mn)). A systematic comparison of this algorithm was done and the results show that this algorithm has the better average complexity than other published algorithms. The way of comparison and the results are given in a separate paper [Linear Algebra Appl. (submitted)]. Finally we prove that the problem can be solved in polynomial time also in a class of discrete sets which is larger than the class of convex polyominoes, namely, in the class of 8-connected convex sets. ` `

Then it is proved that if a binary matrix is non-uniquely determined, then it contains a special pattern of 0s and 1s called composition of alternatively corner-connected components. In a previous paper [Discrete Appl. Math.
