1 Cavity, concavity Cavity – bounded connected component of background (a hollow in an object) Concavity - concave shapes of the contour of an object. 2D hole = 2D cavity cavity, 2D hole concavity

2 3D hole and 3D cavity There is no good precise mathematical definition of a 3D hole. There is only a method how we can detect a hole The presence of a hole in X is detected whenever there is a closed path in X that cannot be iteratively deformed in X to a single point. [Kong 89] According to the method a hole is not a subset of 3D space. [Coup 10a]

7 3D hole closing algorithm (i-th iteration) [Coup 10a]

8 3D hole closing algorithm (last but one iteration) Surface points T = 1; Tb = 2 Curve point (1D isthmus point) T = 2; Tb = 1 [Coup 10a]

9 3D hole closing algorithm Surface points T = 1; Tb = 2 [Coup 10a]

10 3D hole closing algorithm Let (Z 3, m, n, B) is a digital image and Y is a rectangular prism set of black points such that B  Y. The algorithm iteratively removes border points x of Y \ B such that Tb(x) = 1. The removing process is guided by a distance function of point x from set B. [Actouf 2002]

11 3D hole closing examples [Aktouf 02]

12 3D hole closing examples [Coup 10a]

13 3D selective closing of holes Input set: B, Y – rectangular prism: B  Y The algorithm in addition deletes each point x which is a surface point (Tb(x) = 2 and T(x) = 1) and d(x, B) > a [Aktouf 02]

14 Properties of 3D hole closing algorithm Linear in time and space (optimal). Based on well defined topological characteristic of points. No parameters to tune or only one parameter (size of a hole) when it utilises a distance map to close only small holes. wide potential application (reparation of tomografic images, fast detection of holes). Drawbacks Closes not only holes but also cavities. Sensitive to branches which are close to a hole.

20 Filtered skeleton constrained by medial axis The algorithm uses the following notions: quadratic Euclidean distance, medial axis, Euclidean skeleton, bisector function. Denotes Let denote by E the discrete plane Z 2, by N the set of nonnegative integers, and by N * the set of strictly positive integers. A point x in E is defined by (x 1, x 2 ) with x i in Z. Let x, y є E. Let denote by d 2 (x,y) the square of the Euclidean distance between x and y, that is, d 2 (x,y) = (x 1, y 1 ) 2 + (x 2 y 2 ) 2. Let Y  E, let denote by d 2 (x,Y) the square of the Euclidean distance between x and the set Y, that is, d 2 (x,Y) = min{d 2 (x,y); y є Y}.

21 Squared Euclidean distance map Let X be (the ‘‘object’’), we denote by the map from E to N which associates, to each point x of E, the value where denotes the complementary of X (the ‘‘background’’). The map is called the (squared Euclidean) distance map of X.

22 How to efficiently calculate the squared Euclidean distance

23 Thickness of an object Let E = Z 2 or E = R 2, X  E, and let x є X. The thickness t(x) of the object X at x is defined as a radius of a biggest ball among balls centred at x and included in X. [Atta 96] x t(x) y t(y)

24 Projection Let X be a nonempty subset of E, and let x є X. The projection of x on X, denoted by Pr(x,X), is the set of points y of which are at minimal distance from x. [Coup 07] x y a b c

25 Bisector function Let X  E, and let x є X. The bisector angle of x in X, denoted by θ X (x), is the maximal unsigned angle between the vectors,, for all y, z in Pr(x, X). In particular, if #Pr(x, X) = 1, then θ X (x) = 0. The bisector function of X, denoted by θ X, is the function which associates to each point x of X, its bisector angle in X. x y a b c θ X (x)

26 Bisector function in continuous space Let E = R 2, X  E, and let x є X. If x belongs to the medial axis of X, then its bisector angle is strictly positive. The bisector angle is equal to π for points where the thickness of the object is extremum [Vinc 91]. x y a b c d π

27 Bisector function in discreet space

28 Extended projection Let E = Z 2, X  E and x є X. The extended projection of x on X, denoted by EPr(x, X), is the union of the sets Pr(y; X), for all y in the 4-neighborhood of x (6-neighborhood in Z 3 ).

29 Extended bisector function Let X  Z 2, and let x є X. The extended bisector angle of x in X, denoted by, is the maximal unsigned angle between the vectors,, for all y, z in EPr(x,X). The extended bisector function of X, denoted by, is the function which associates to each point x of X, its extended bisector angle in X.

30 Niece-looking statement Let X  Z 2, and let x є X. If x belongs to the medial axis of X, then its extended bisector angle is strictly positive. [Coup 07]

36 Ultimate skeleton constrained by a set Let (E, m, n, B) be a digital image where E = Z 2 lub Z 3 and B is a finite subset of black points. Def of thinning is presented in slide 19. It is a process of iterative deletion of simple points form an input object B.slide 19 We say that Y  B is an ultimate skeleton of B if Y is an result of thinning of B and there is no simple point for Y. Let C be a subset of B. We say that Y is an ultimate skeleton of B constrained by C if the following conditions are true: C  Y Y is a result of thinning of B there is no simple point in B \ C The set C is called the constraint set relative to this skeleton [Vinc 91].

37 Ultimate skeleton, constrained by a set and distance-guided Let C be a subset of B. We say that Y is an ultimate skeleton of B constrained by C and distance-guided if Y is an ultimate skeleton of B constrained by C and the deletion of points is guided by a distance function d in order to select first the points which are closest to the background. UltimateGuidedSkeleton (Input B, d, C, Output Z) 01. Z ← B 02. Q ← {(d(x), x); where x is any point of B \ Y } 03. While Q ≠ θ; Do 04.choose (d(x), x) in Q such that d(x) is minimal 05. If x is simple for Z t hen 06. Z ← Z \ {x} 07.Q ← Q ∪ {(d(y), y); where y ∊ N m (x) ∩ (Z \ Y) }
