Paper Abstract

There are still several points to be clarified in the method of extraction of a certain region from soft tissues, but the high speed contour detection technique is most urgently needed for the reconstruction of real time 3 dimensional (3-D) images. This proceedings show our newly developed technique, using fuzzy inference taking the case of extraction of the contour of carotid artery from serial echographics. And to prove the correctness of our new method, we show the reconstructed 3-D image by piling up the contours which are extracted by our new method. The time required at fuzzy inference operation on the fuzzy chip is less than 1 ms excluding the data transfer time.
