Paper Abstract

Multiresolution data structures, such as image pyramids, have many different uses in image processing and analysis. We present a segmentation algorithm which uses image pyramids for efficient segmentation of 3D images. The segmented objects are converted from a voxel to a polyhedral surface representation. Results of experiments on synthetic and actual CT data are presented, and future enhancements to the algorithm are discussed.
