Cubic and Hermite splines for VTK
No opinion
A cubic spline is a spline where each curve is defined by a third-order polynomial, while a Hermite spline has each polynomial specified in Hermite form, being computed using tangent information as well as the position of the points. We propose two new [...]

A new implementation of itk::ImageToImageFilter for efficient parallelization of image processing algorithms using Intel Threading Building Blocks
Modern medical imaging makes use of high performance computing to accelerate image acquisition, image reconstruction, image visualization and image analysis. Software libraries that provide implementations of key medical imaging algorithms need to efficiently [...]

Providing values of adjacent voxel with vtkDiscreteMarchingCubes
No opinion
The contribution to VTK presented in this article is an extension to vtk::vtkDiscreteMarchingCubes to also create vtk::vtkPointData scalars containing the value of the adjacent voxel. These can be used to remove regions of the marching-cubes 1 mesh depending [...]

Isotropic and Steerable Wavelets in N Dimensions. A multiresolution analysis framework.
This document describes the implementation of the external module ITKIsotropicWavelets, a multiresolution (MRA) analysis framework using isotropic and steerable wavelets in the frequency domain. This framework provides the backbone for state of the art [...]

Performance Benchmarking the Insight Toolkit
No opinion
This document describes a module for the Insight Toolkit (ITK) to assist in performance benchmarking and a suite of benchmarks for the toolkit. These resources provide metrics to quantify software computational performance. This is a pre-requisite to improve [...]

Automatic Mandible Segmentation on CT Images Using Prior Anatomical Knowledge
No opinion
We present a fully automatic method for segmenting mandible in CT images using anatomic landmarks and prior knowledge. The aim is to utilize spatial relationship of anatomic landmarks with image processing techniques to detect mandible robustly and [...]

Automatic Segmentation of Structures in CT Head and Neck Images using a Coupled Shape Model
No opinion
The common approach to do a fully automatic segmentation of multiple structures is an atlas or multi-atlas based solution. These already have proven to be suitable for the segmentation of structures in the head and neck area and provide very accurate [...]

ITK in Biomedical Research and Commercial Applications
No opinion
The Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit ( has become a standard in academia and industry for medical image analysis. In recent years, the ITK developers' community has focused on providing programming interfaces to ITK from Python, Java, [...]

A Multi-atlas Approach for the Automatic Segmentation of Multiple Structures in Head and Neck CT Images
No opinion
A multi-atlas approach is proposed for the automatic segmentation of nine different structures in a set of head and neck CT images for radiotherapy. The approach takes advantage of a training dataset of 25 images to build average head and neck atlases of [...]

Head and Neck Auto Segmentation Challenge based on Non-Local Generative Models
No opinion
A new patch based label fusion method based on generative approach is proposed for segmentation of mandible, brainstem, parotid and submandibular glands, optic nerves and the optic chiasm in head and neck CT images. The proposal constructs local classifiers [...]
