Structuring element and morphological filtering are important methods to process and analyze images. The conception and character of generalized structuring element (GS) and expended morphological filtering (EMF) are presented. The advantage of GS and EMF is given out comparing to the traditional structuring element and morphological filtering. Two typical experiments using the theory of GS and EMF show that the novel method can extract information of important components from complex image efficiently.
