Contrast Independent Detection of Branching Points in Network-Like Structures

Abstract:

Many biomedical applications require the detection of branching structures in images. While several algorithms have been proposed for (semi-)automatic extraction of these structures, branching points usually need specific treatment. We propose a vector field-based approach to identify branching points in images. A vector field is calculated using a novel contrast-independent tensor representation based on local phase. Non-curvilinear structures, including junctions and end points, are detecte...
