Coupled Curves Segmentation

Coupled Curves Segmentation

In medical collaboration with:
German Heart Center

Contact Person(s): Abouzar Eslami

Keywords: Segmentation

Abstract

The term of coupled curves refers to two or more boundaries bounded biomechanically or anatomically. Some examples are luminal and outer borders of the vessel in intravascular ultrasound images, the myocardial borders of heart in different cardiac modalities like Echocardiography and MRI, retinal layers in optical coherent tomography of eye etc. Coupling these boundaries and taking into account their interdependency efficiently assists segmentation of weaker boundaries by the guide of stronger ones. This project is an extension to our recently developed segmentation approaches by modifying the formulation to segment coupled curves. The primary deliverable is segmentation of double boundaries and can be followed to the secondary deliverable, i.e. segmentation of multiple boundaries depending on the performance of the researcher. Platform of the project is visual programing with mevislab. Preferred coding language is C++ Nevertheless matlab coding can be used for development. There are plenty of applications to the segmentation of coupled curves in medical image processing and the project has significant contribution with high impact to the community.
