Abstract

The shape-based segmentation and characterization of biomedical images was discussed. The shapes descriptors of objects in computer images were extracted from a variety of sources, and their utility in biomedical applications was proved. They were used for the segmentation of cerabral ventricles from magnetic resonance images, and discrimination between the normal and abnormal nerve axons in photomicrographs.
