IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON IMAGE PROCESSING, VOL. XX, NO. Y, MONTH 2003 1 Improving the Accuracy of Volumetric
 

Summary: IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON IMAGE PROCESSING, VOL. XX, NO. Y, MONTH 2003 1
Improving the Accuracy of Volumetric
Segmentation Using Pre-Processing Boundary
Detection and Image Reconstruction.
Rick Archibald, Jiuxiang Hu, Anne Gelb, and Gerald Farin
Abstract-- The concentration edge detection and Gegenbauer
image reconstruction methods were previously shown to improve
the quality of segmentation in magnetic resonance imaging. In
this study these methods are utilized as a pre-processing step to
the Weibull E-SD field segmentation. It is demonstrated that the
combination of the concentration edge detection and Gegenbauer
reconstruction method improves the accuracy of segmentation for
the simulated test data and real magnetic resonance images used
in this study.
