Fast Parametric Snakes for 3D Microscopy

R. Delgado-Gonzalo, N. Chenouard, M. Unser

Proceedings of the Ninth IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro (ISBI'12), Barcelona, Kingdom of Spain, May 2-5, 2012, pp. 852-855.

We present a new fast active contour for images in 3D microscopy. We introduce a fully parametric design that relies on exponential B-spline bases and allows us to impose a sphere-like topology. The proposed 3D snake can approximate blob-like objects with good accuracy. The optimization process is remarkably fast. Our technique yields successful segmentation results even for a challenging data set where object contours are not well defined. This happens because our parametric approach allows us to favor prior shapes. This work comes with a companion software that allows extensive interactions between the end-user and our snakes through the intuitive manipulation of the few control points that fully characterize them.
