Paper Abstract

Edges are the most essential feature of an image. Edge-detection is an important step before 3-D reconstruction of medical image occurs. Because of the miscellaneous variety of medical images, some traditional edge-collect methods are not satisfactory. Utilizing Matlab, a program of edge-collect for medical-image was developed. For its specificity of compact support-set better than Gauss-function, the 3-order B-Spline function was chosen as the base function of wavelet used in this method. The results show that both the quality of the edge image and the treating efficacy are improved by the proposed method, compared with the traditional methods.
