    This paper presents the extension of our previous work on moment invariants with respect to centroid point (obtained from frontal mugs hot images) for thermal-based face identification system. In previous work, seeded region growing method was applied for background filtering. Sequentially, the system decomposes a background filtered thermal image into 4 thermal regions via 3-valued threshold meth... View full abstract»

    Accurate extraction of prostate biopsy samples during Transectal Ultra Sound (TRUS) guided prostate biopsy is facilitated with the registration of pre-acquired Magnetic Resonance (MR) images with the Ultrasound (US) images. This paper proposes a novel method of generating optimal correspondences to register the MR and US images using Thin-Plate Splines (TPS) transformation. The correspondence gene...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (513 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a medical imaging system able to assist practitioner to analyze colposcopic images. The goal is to automatically make all images to a common frame. Image registration has been used to ensure pixel correspondence to the same tissue location throughout the whole temporal sequence. Best approaches are based on using local information, but they are very sensitive to light change an... View full abstract»

  • Prostate Segmentation with Texture Enhanced Active Appearance Model

    Prostate contour segmented from Trans Rectal Ultra Sound (TRUS) and Magnetic Resonance (MR) images could improve inter-modality registration accuracy and reduce computational complexity of the procedure. However, prostate segmentation in each of these modalities is a challenging task in presence of imaging artifacts, intensity heterogeneities, and large inter patient shape variabilities of the pro...

    The objective of this paper is to evaluate the classification performance of several feature extraction and classification methods for exotic wood texture images as dataset. The Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix, Local Binary Patterns, Wavelet, Ranklet, Granulometry, and Laws' Masks will be used to extract features from the images. The extracted features are then fed into five classification techniq... View full abstract»

    In this paper we address the issue of recognizing nonstandard Malaysian car license plates. These plates contain nonstandard characters such as italic, cursive and connected letters, which most plate recognition systems are unable to recognize. We propose a technique using stroke extraction and analysis to recognize these nonstandard characters. The proposed technique first extracts the contour of... View full abstract»

  • Multiple Birth and Cut Algorithm for Point Process Optimization

    In this paper, we describe a new optimization method which we call Multiple Birth and Cut (MBC). It combines the recently developed Multiple Birth and Death (MBD) algorithm and the Graph-Cut algorithm. MBD and MBC optimization methods are applied to the energy minimization of an object based model, the marked point process. We compare the MBC to the MBD showing the advantages and disadvantages, wh... View full abstract»

  • Stylization of Lighting Effects for Images

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):43 - 50
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5393 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose a new model to stylize lighting effects in 2D images. Our stylizations are based on well-known artistic styles ranging from Chiaroscuro to comics. Lighting has always been used in graphical art to give realism to an illustration or to enhance visual contrasts between objects in a scene. This allows creating a global atmosphere. Giving an input image, our model automatically generates a ... View full abstract»

  • A Region-Based Progressive Coding of Semi-Regular 3-D Meshes for View-Dependent Transmission

    We first introduce in this paper a new wavelet based segmentation algorithm for three-dimensional (3-D) Semi-Regular (SR) meshes. This method is then considered as a pre-processing step in a view-dependent progressive coding of 3-D meshes. Our segmentation process aims at producing homogeneous regions which have similar frequency amplitudes on the mesh surface, in other words: patches with differe... View full abstract»

  • Fractal-based Impressionist Style Rendering

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (10502 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose a novel image processing model that produces impressionist style paintings from photographs. Characteristics, here called impressionist constraints, are extracted from photographs and expressed as height map data. We use a constrained fractal model to generate a new image that satisfies the initial height map data constraints. Then, we enhance the characteristics extraction model and pr... View full abstract»
