Curvilinear structure modeling and its applications in computer vision

Abstract : In this dissertation, we propose curvilinear structure reconstruction models based on stochastic modeling and ranking learning system. We assume that the entire line network can be decomposed into a set of line segments with variable lengths and orientations. This assumption enables us to reconstruct arbitrary shapes of curvilinear structure for different types of datasets. We compute curvilinear feature descriptors based on the image gradient profiles and the morphological profiles. For the stochastic model, we propose prior constraints that define the spatial interaction of line segments. To obtain an optimal configuration corresponding to the latent curvilinear structure, we combine multiple line hypotheses which are computed by MCMC sampling with different parameter sets. Moreover, we learn a ranking function which predicts the correspondence of the given line segment and the latent curvilinear structures. A novel graph-based method is proposed to infer the underlying curvilinear structure using the output rankings of the line segments. We apply our models to analyze curvilinear structure on static images. Experimental results on wide types of datasets demonstrate that the proposed curvilinear structure modeling outperforms the state-of-the-art techniques.
