  Title A Complete Confidence Framework for Optical Flow Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication 12th European Conference on Computer Vision – Workshops and Demonstrations Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 7584 Issue 2 Pages 124-133  
  Keywords Optical flow, confidence measures, sparsification plots, error prediction plots  
  Abstract Medial representations are powerful tools for describing and parameterizing the volumetric shape of anatomical structures. Existing methods show excellent results when applied to 2D objects, but their quality drops across dimensions. This paper contributes to the computation of medial manifolds in two aspects. First, we provide a standard scheme for the computation of medial manifolds that avoid degenerated medial axis segments; second, we introduce an energy based method which performs independently of the dimension. We evaluate quantitatively the performance of our method with respect to existing approaches, by applying them to synthetic shapes of known medial geometry. Finally, we show results on shape representation of multiple abdominal organs, exploring the use of medial manifolds for the representation of multi-organ relations.

  Title Error Analysis for Lucas-Kanade Based Schemes Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication 9th International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 7324 Issue I Pages 184-191  
  Keywords Optical flow, Confidence measure, Lucas-Kanade, Cardiac Magnetic Resonance  
  Abstract Optical flow is a valuable tool for motion analysis in medical imaging sequences. A reliable application requires determining the accuracy of the computed optical flow. This is a main challenge given the absence of ground truth in medical sequences. This paper presents an error analysis of Lucas-Kanade schemes in terms of intrinsic design errors and numerical stability of the algorithm. Our analysis provides a confidence measure that is naturally correlated to the accuracy of the flow field. Our experiments show the higher predictive value of our confidence measure compared to existing measures.

  Title Structure-Preserving Smoothing of Biomedical Images Type Conference Article
  Year 2009 Publication 13th International Conference on Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 5702 Issue Pages 427-434  
  Keywords non-linear smoothing; differential geometry; anatomical structures segmentation; cardiac magnetic resonance; computerized tomography.  
  Abstract Smoothing of biomedical images should preserve gray-level transitions between adjacent tissues, while restoring contours consistent with anatomical structures. Anisotropic diffusion operators are based on image appearance discontinuities (either local or contextual) and might fail at weak inter-tissue transitions. Meanwhile, the output of block-wise and morphological operations is prone to present a block structure due to the shape and size of the considered pixel neighborhood. In this contribution, we use differential geometry concepts to define a diffusion operator that restricts to image consistent level-sets. In this manner, the final state is a non-uniform intensity image presenting homogeneous inter-tissue transitions along anatomical structures, while smoothing intra-structure texture. Experiments on different types of medical images (magnetic resonance, computerized tomography) illustrate its benefit on a further process (such as segmentation) of images.

  Title Left-Ventricle Basal Region Constrained Parametric Mapping to Unitary Domain Type Conference Article
  Year 2016 Publication 7th International Workshop on Statistical Atlases & Computational Modelling of the Heart Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 10124 Issue Pages 163-171  
  Keywords Laplacian; Constrained maps; Parameterization; Basal ring  
  Abstract Due to its complex geometry, the basal ring is often omitted when putting different heart geometries into correspondence. In this paper, we present the first results on a new mapping of the left ventricle basal rings onto a normalized coordinate system using a fold-over free approach to the solution to the Laplacian. To guarantee correspondences between different basal rings, we imposed some internal constrained positions at anatomical landmarks in the normalized coordinate system. To prevent internal fold-overs, constraints are handled by cutting the volume into regions defined by anatomical features and mapping each piece of the volume separately. Initial results presented in this paper indicate that our method is able to handle internal constrains without introducing fold-overs and thus guarantees one-to-one mappings between different basal ring geometries.

  Title Factors Affecting Optical Flow Performance in Tagging Magnetic Resonance Imaging Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication 17th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 8896 Issue Pages 231-238  
  Keywords Optical flow; Performance Evaluation; Synthetic Database; ANOVA; Tagging Magnetic Resonance Imaging  
  Abstract Changes in cardiac deformation patterns are correlated with cardiac pathologies. Deformation can be extracted from tagging Magnetic Resonance Imaging (tMRI) using Optical Flow (OF) techniques. For applications of OF in a clinical setting it is important to assess to what extent the performance of a particular OF method is stable across di erent clinical acquisition artifacts. This paper presents a statistical validation framework, based on ANOVA, to assess the motion and appearance factors that have the largest in uence on OF accuracy drop.
In order to validate this framework, we created a database of simulated tMRI data including the most common artifacts of MRI and test three di erent OF methods, including HARP.

  Title Discarding Non Informative Regions for Efficient Colonoscopy Image Analysis Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication 1st MICCAI Workshop on Computer-Assisted and Robotic Endoscopy Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 8899 Issue Pages 1-10  
  Keywords Image Segmentation; Polyps, Colonoscopy; Valley Information; Energy Maps  
  Abstract In this paper we present a novel polyp region segmentation method for colonoscopy videos. Our method uses valley information associated to polyp boundaries in order to provide an initial segmentation. This first segmentation is refined to eliminate boundary discontinuities caused by image artifacts or other elements of the scene. Experimental results over a publicly annotated database show that our method outperforms both general and specific segmentation methods by providing more accurate regions rich in polyp content. We also prove how image preprocessing is needed to improve final polyp region segmentation.

  Title Exploring the impact of inter-query variability on the performance of retrieval systems Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication 11th International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 8814 Issue Pages 413–420  
  Keywords  
  Abstract This paper introduces a framework for evaluating the performance of information retrieval systems. Current evaluation metrics provide an average score that does not consider performance variability across the query set. In this manner, conclusions lack of any statistical significance, yielding poor inference to cases outside the query set and possibly unfair comparisons. We propose to apply statistical methods in order to obtain a more informative measure for problems in which different query classes can be identified. In this context, we assess the performance variability on two levels: overall variability across the whole query set and specific query class-related variability. To this end, we estimate confidence bands for precision-recall curves, and we apply ANOVA in order to assess the significance of the performance across different query classes.

  Keywords Lumen centre detection; Bronchoscopy; Colonoscopy  
  Abstract We present in this paper a novel lumen centre detection for gastrointestinal and respiratory endoscopic images. The proposed method is based on the appearance and geometry of the lumen, which we defined as the darkest image region which centre is a hub of image gradients. Experimental results validated on the first public annotated gastro-respiratory database prove the reliability of the method for a wide range of images (with precision over 95 %).

  Title An improved model of snakes for model-based segmentation Type Conference Article
  Year 1995 Publication Proceedings of Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 515-520  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The main advantage of segmentation by snakes consists in its ability to incorporate smoothness constraints on the detected shapes that can occur. Likewise, we propose to model snakes with other properties that reflect the information provided about the object of interest in a different extent. We consider different kinds of snakes, those searching for contours with a certain direction, those preserving an object’s model, those seeking for symmetry, those expanding open, etc. The availability of such a collection of snakes allows not only the more complete use of the knowledge about the segmented object, but also to solve some problems of the existing snakes. Our experiments on segmentation of facial features justify the usefulness of snakes with different properties.

  Title A Deterministic-Statistic Adventitia Detection in IVUS Images Type Conference Article
  Year 2005 Publication 3rd International workshop on International Workshop on Functional Imaging and Modeling of the Heart Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 65-74  
  Keywords Electron microscopy; Unbending; 2D crystal; Interpolation; Approximation  
  Abstract Plaque analysis in IVUS planes needs accurate intima and adventitia models. Large variety in adventitia descriptors difficulties its detection and motivates using a classification strategy for selecting points on the structure. Whatever the set of descriptors used, the selection stage suffers from fake responses due to noise and uncompleted true curves. In order to smooth background noise while strengthening responses, we apply a restricted anisotropic filter that homogenizes grey levels along the image significant structures. Candidate points are extracted by means of a simple semi supervised adaptive classification of the filtered image response to edge and calcium detectors. The final model is obtained by interpolating the former line segments with an anisotropic contour closing technique based on functional extension principles.
