On What Manifold do Diffusion Tensors Live?
No opinion
Diffusion tensor imaging has become an important research and clinical tool, owing to its unique ability to infer microstructural properties of living tissue. Increased use has led to a demand for statistical tools to analyze diffusion tensor data and [...]

Morphological Appearance Manifolds in Computational Anatomy: Groupwise Registration and Morphological Analysis
No opinion
The field of computational anatomy has developed rigorous frameworks for analyzing anatomical shape, based on diffeomorphic transformations of a template. However, differences in algorithms used for template warping, in regularization parameters, and in the [...]

Construction of Statistical Shape Models from Minimal Deformations
No opinion
Abstract. Statistical shape models (SSM) capture the variation of shape across a population, in order to allow further analysis. Previous work demonstrates that deformation fields contain global transformation components, even if global pre- registration is [...]

Surface Mesh Discrete Curvature Estimators
Computing local curvatures of a given surface is important for applications, shape analysis, surface segmentation, meshing, and surface evolution. For a given smooth surface (with a given analytical expression which is sufficiently differentiable) curvatures [...]

Surface Mesh Normals Filter
We have previously developed a new surface mesh data structure in itk (code{itk::QuadEdgeMesh}~cite{itkQE}). In this document we describe a new filter (code{itk::QENormalFilter}) to estimate normals for a given triangular surface mesh in this data structure. [...]

Computational Biomechanics for Medicine III - Workshop proceedings
No opinion
A novel partnership between surgeons and machines, made possible by advances in computing and engineering technology, could overcome many of the limitations of traditional surgery. By extending surgeons' ability to plan and carry out surgical interventions [...]

An Automatic Seeding Method For Coronary Artery Segmentation and Skeletonization in CTA
No opinion
An automatic seeding method for coronary artery segmentation and skeletonization is presented. The new method includes automatic removal of the rib cage, tracing of the ascending aorta and initial planting of seeds for the coronary arteries. The automatic [...]

An iterative Bayesian approach for liver analysis: tumors validation study
We present a new method for the simultaneous, nearly automatic segmentation of liver contours, vessels, and tumors from abdominal CTA scans. The method repeatedly applies multi-resolution, multi-class smoothed Bayesian classification followed by [...]

Comparison of Displacement-Based and Force-Based Mapped Meshing
No opinion
The finite element (FE) method is a powerful tool for the study of biomechanics. One of the limiting factors in transitioning this tool into the clinic is the time required to generate high quality meshes for analysis. Previously, we developed a mapped [...]

Connected Component and Morphology Based Extraction of Arterial Centerlines of the Heart (CocomoBeach)
No opinion
This document describes a novel scheme for the automated extraction of the central lumen lines of coronary arteries from computed tomography angiography (CTA) data. The scheme first obtains a seg- mentation of the whole coronary tree and subsequently [...]
