Introduction to Programming for Image Analysis with VTK
by Xenophon Papademetris
Publisher: Image Processing and Analysis Group 2006
Number of pages: 238
This book is an edited collection of class handouts that I wrote for the graduate seminar "Programming for Medical Image Analysis" that was taught at Yale University, Department of Biomedical Engineering, in the Fall of 2006. My goal for the class was to provide sufficient introductory material for a typical 1st year engineering graduate student with some background in programming in C and C++ to acquire the skills to leverage modern open source toolkits in medical image analysis and visualization such as the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) and, to a lesser extent, the Insight Toolkit (ITK).

Nearest feature classification for face recognition, subspace methods, a multi-stage classifier for face recognition undertaken by coarse-to-fine strategy, PCA-ANN face recognition system based on photometric normalization techniques, etc.

We propose a new object detection/recognition method, which improves over the existing methods in every stage of the object detection/recognition process. In addition to the usual features, we propose to use geometric shapes as additional features.

Visual Reconstruction presents a unified and highly original approach to the treatment of continuity in vision. The book introduces two new concepts: the weak continuity constraint and the graduated nonconvexity algorithm.
