Efficient computation of Hessian-based enhancement filters for tubular structures in 3D images

Abstract:

This work presents guidelines for a computationally efficient implementation of multiscale image filters based on eigenanalysis of the Hessian matrix, for the enhancement of tubular structures. Our focus is the application to 3D medical images of blood vessels. The method uses matrix trace, determinant and sign to discard voxels unlikely to belong to vessels, prior to the calculation of the Hessian eigenvalues. As example of time savings, we provide results obtained in four computed tomograph...
