Every archaeological excavation is confronted with a vast number of ceramic fragments. The documentation, administration and scientific processing of these fragments presents a temporal, personnel and financial problem. Scientific evaluation in archaeological practice

An Automated 3D Image Processing Strategy for Small-Animal Bioluminescence Cancer Studies
free download

Small-animal bioluminescence tomographic (BLT) imaging can detect cellular or molecular events in vivo and non-invasively. The specific goal of this project is to develop and validate optimal methodologies for imaging light emission at optical wavelengths in order to study

Automated volumetric measurement of truckloads through multi-view photogrammetry and 3D image processing software
free download

Given that wood represents on average about 1/3 of the delivered cost, it is key to adopt correct measurement procedures and technologies that provide better wood volume estimates. Poor measurements not only impact the revenue obtained by haulage contractors

A survey on stereo matching techniques for 3D vision in image processing
free download

Extraction of three-dimensional scene from the stereo images is the most effective research area in the field of computer vision. Stereo vision constructs the actual three-dimensional scene from two stereo images having different viewpoints. Stereo matching is a

3D discrete wavelet transform VLSI architecture for image processing
free download

In this paper, we propose an improved version of lifting based 3D Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) VLSI architecture which uses bi-orthogonal 9/7 filter processing . This is implemented in FPGA by using VHDL codes. The lifting based DWT architecture has the

Image processing and display of 3D intra-coronary ultrasound images
free download

Intra-coronary ultrasound provides a means to generate high resolution tomographic images of the coronary artery and surrounding tissue. These images are ideally suited for a number of image processing techniques to improve visualization of the vascular structures of

Assessment of 3D signal and image processing using FMCW THz signals
free download

Terahertz wave radiation is defined as the farinfrared electromagnetic radiation between 0.1 and 10 THz. In recent years, renewed interest has come in three dimensional imaging, using the transparency property of most non-metal objects in the sub-THz range. Given the high

Providing with high performance 3d medical image processing on a distributed environment
free download

High Performance Computing has demonstrated extensively its potential benefit for reaching an efficient processing of 3D medical images. However, there are few commercial image processing solutions that benefit from High Performance Computing. Although bi-processor

Application of a degenerate diffusion method in 3D medical image processing
free download

In this contribution, we present the application of the level set formulation of the geodesic active contours model and its 3D semi-implicit complementary volume discretization to the segmentation of 2D+ t cardiac MRI (CMR) data. The appropriate adujstment of algorithm

In vivo 3D quantification of melanin in human skin based on multiphoton microscopy and image processing
free download

Multiphoton microscopy is a recent non-invasive skin imaging technique that allows the human skin three-dimensional structure to be characterized in vivo with sub-µm resolution. This technique, in combination with specific 3D image processing tools, allows an automatic

Real-time 3D reconstruction of complex scenes using single-photon lidar: when image processing meets computer graphics
free download

Single-photon lidar has emerged as a prime candidate technology for depth imaging in extreme scenarios, such as through fog, clutter or in underwater environments. Until now, a major challenge has been the rapid reconstruction of single-photon data, to permit the real

3D Multiple Crack System: Extraction and Analysis Using Motion-Based Image Processing Technique
free download

We present a motion-based method to extract the multiple 3D crack surfaces from a sequence of 3D X-ray microtomographic mortar images. We verify the correctness and accuracy of results by ground truth obtained with simulated cracks in real specimens. We
