Spatially-variant morpho-hessian filter: efficient implementation and applications

Abstract : Elongated objects are more difficult to filter than more isotropic ones because they locally comprise fewer pixels. For thin linear objects, this problem is compounded because there is only a restricted set of directions that can be used for filtering, and finding this local direction is not a simple problem. In addition, disconnections can easily appear due to noise. In this paper we tackle both issues by combining a linear filter for direction finding and a morphological one for filtering. More specifically, we use the eigen-analysis of the Hessian for detecting thin, linear objects, and a spatially-variant opening or closing for their enhancement and reconnection. We discuss the theory of spatially-variant morphological filters and present an efficient algorithm. The resulting spatially-variant morphological filter is shown to successfully enhance directions in 2D and 3D examples illustrated with a brain blood vessel segmentation problem.
