3-D Image Processing Algorithms by N. Nikolaidis,Ioannis Pitas

By N. Nikolaidis,Ioannis Pitas

Thorough, updated, finished assurance of 3-D photograph processing This authoritative advisor offers and explains a number of three-D snapshot processing, research, and visualization ideas, together with quantity filtering, interpolation, three-D discrete Fourier remodel, assessment of topological and geometrical beneficial properties, sector segmentation and area detection, skeletonization and registration, and visualization. precious theoretical heritage is supplied for every subject, besides a couple of algorithms, chosen at the foundation in their attractiveness by means of the clinical community.

The presentation of every strategy incorporates a commented implementation, both in C code or in C-like pseudocode. although provided in a nearly ready-to-run shape, the C code is simplified to reveal the constitution of the processing algorithms, instead of their programming info. this mixture of theoretical therapy and C code implementation permits readers to achieve a radical perception into those techniques.
