Paper Abstract

Developing techniques for interpreting the structure of volumetric data is useful in many applications. A key initial stage is volumetric segmentation involving the processes of pariilionirig and idenificaion. Here we present a parallel algorithm which through the use of a-partitioning and volume filtering segments volumetric image data such that the greylevel variation within each volume can be described by a regression model. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of this algorithm on several real-world 3D images.
