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).

The author introduces the basic concepts of machine vision, then develops these ideas to describe intelligent imaging techniques for use in a new generation of industrial imaging systems. Several case studies in industrial applications are discussed.

This modern treatment of computer vision focuses on learning and inference in probabilistic models as a unifying theme. It shows how to use data to learn the relationships between the observed image data and the aspects that we wish to estimate.

The book is the only account of what the bee actually detects with its eyes. The erratic path to understanding makes interesting reading for anyone with an analytical mind who thinks about the methods of science or the engineering of seeing machines.

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++.
