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).

Provides an extensive survey of over 100 machine vision methods, with a detailed taxonomy for local, regional and global features. It provides background to develop intuition about why interest point detectors and feature descriptors actually work.

Introductory textbook and a research monograph on modelling the statistical structure of natural images. The statistical structure of natural images is described using a number of statistical models whose parameters are estimated from image samples.

Explores a method for symbolically intrepreting images based upon a parallel implementation of a network-of-frames to describe intelligent processing. The system has been implemented in an object-oriented environment in the language Parlog++.

The book provides new ideas, original results and practical experiences regarding service robotics. It is only a small example of this research activity, but it covers a great deal of what has been done in the field recently.
