Interactive volume segmentation with differential image foresting transforms
(Ieee-inst Electrical Electronics Engineers IncPiscatawayEUA, 2004)
Medical image retrieval based on complexity analysis
Texture is one of the most important visual attributes used in image analysis. It is used in many content-based image retrieval systems, where it allows the identification of a larger number of images from distinct origins. ...
Building a Open Source Framework for Virtual Medical Training
This paper presents a framework to build medical training applications by using virtual reality and a tool that helps the class instantiation of this framework. The main purpose is to make easier the building of virtual ...
A New Family of Distance Functions for Perceptual Similarity Retrieval of Medical Images
A long-standing challenge of content-based image retrieval (CBIR) systems is the definition of a suitable distance function to measure the similarity between images in an application context which complies with the human ...
Automatic segmentation of the lumen region in intravascular images of the coronary artery
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-08-01)
Image assessment of the arterial system plays an important role in the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. The segmentation of the lumen and media-adventitia in intravascular (IVUS) images of the coronary artery is the ...
Content-based medical image retrieval and intelligent interactive visual browser for medical education, research and care
Medical imaging is essential nowadays throughout medical education, research, and care. Accordingly, international efforts have been made to set large-scale image repositories for these purposes. Yet, to date, browsing of ...
A similarity-based data warehousing environment for medical images
A core issue of the decision-making process in the medical field is to support the execution of analytical (OLAP) similarity queries over images in data warehousing environments. In this paper, we focus on this issue. We ...
