Edge, Ridge, and Blob Detection with Symmetric Molecules [article]

Rafael Reisenhofer, Emily J. King
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We present a novel approach to the detection and characterization of edges, ridges, and blobs in two-dimensional images which exploits the symmetry properties of directionally sensitive analyzing functions  ...  To further demonstrate the applicability, we show how the proposed ridge measure can be used to detect and characterize blood vessels in digital retinal images and how the proposed blob measure can be  ...  Starck for suggesting that we extend the framework to the case of blob detection and M. Schäfer for insightful discussions on the subject of α-molecules. We are grateful to Q.  ...

3-D shape estimation of DNA molecules from stereo cryo-electron micro-graphs using a projection-steerable snake

M. Jacob, T. Blu, C. Vaillant, J.H. Maddocks, M. Unser
2006 IEEE Transactions on Image Processing  
We estimate the shape by matching the projections of a 3-D global shape model with the micrographs; we choose the global model as a 3-D filament with a B-spline skeleton and a specified radial profile.  ...  The active contour algorithm iteratively updates the B-spline coefficients, which requires us to evaluate the projections and match them with the micrographs at every iteration.  ...  El-Bez, and E. Larquet of the LAU, UNIL, for the active discussions and the data.  ...

Macromolecules, Very Small Grains, and Large Dust Particles in the Whirlpool Galaxy M51 and Its Companion: A Unified View

David L. Block, Bruce G. Elmegreen, Alan Stockton, Marc Sauvage
1997 Astrophysical Journal  
The dust lanes in the arms show sharp inner edges from shock fronts, dense, regularly spaced clumps with star formation, and feathered outer edges from disruption by star formation.  ...  The diffuse gas in M51 is particularly striking: shell-like structures are common, the interarm clouds have spiral shapes, and the inner spiral dust lanes are remarkably symmetric.  ...  ISO is an ESA project with instruments funded by ESA member states (especially the PI countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom) and with participation of ISAS and NASA.  ...

Image analysis in fluorescence microscopy: Bacterial dynamics as a case study

Sven van Teeffelen, Joshua W. Shaevitz, Zemer Gitai
2012 Bioessays  
These images contain a vast amount of information, but this information is often hidden behind various sources of noise, convoluted with other information, and stochastic in nature.  ...  Technical advances in both molecular biology and microscopy have made it possible to image cells from many genetic and environmental backgrounds.  ...  A: Image preparation and the sequence of morphological operations with inversion, thresholding, edge and detection algorithms are shown.  ...

We did not detect the object and place an upper limit on the flux of 0.3 uJy (3sigma).  ...  This model is consistent with the expected eta value and implied high albedo value for this solution, but, given our strict limits on CO and CO2, requires another gas species --- probably H2O --- to explain  ...  We thank the SSC Director for approving these DDT observations and the SSC staff for rapidly implementing these observations with their usual technical excellence.  ...
