False Positive Reduction in CT Colonography using Spectral Compression and Curvature Tensor Smoothing of Surface Geometry

Seghouane, Abd-Krim; Ong, Ju


Existing polyp detection methods rely heavily on curvaturebased characteristics to differentiate between lesions. However, as curvature is a local feature and a second order differential quantity, noise caused by small bumpy structures and incoherent curvature fields of a discretized volume or surface can greatly increase the number of false positives (FPs) detected. This paper investigates a spectral compression and curvature tensor smoothing algorithm with the aim to reduce the number of FPs...[Show more]
