Tensor voting is a robust technique to extract low-level features in noisy images. The approach achieves its robustness by exploiting coherent orientations in local neighborhoods. In this paper we propose an efficient algorithm for dense tensor voting in 3D which makes use of steerable filters. Therefore, we propose steerable expansions of spherical tensor fields in terms of tensorial harmonics, which are their canonical representation. In this way it is possible to perform arbitrary rank tensor voting by linear-combinations of convolutions in an efficient way.
