Paper Abstract

We present means of interactive definition of anatomic objects in medical images via a description of the image in terms of visually sensible regions. The description is produced by computing structures capturing image geometry and following them through the image simplification of Gaussian blurring. In particular, we suggest that the structure made from intensity "ridge" and "course" curves defined by the locus of intensity level curve vertices, augmented by the pile of internal and external symmetric axes of these level curves, satisfies desirable criteria for a structure on which to base such object definition.
