Geodesic-ring based curvature maps for polyp detection in CT colonography

Seghouane, Abd-Krim; Ong, Ju


Existing polyp detection methods rely heavily on curvature-based characteristics to differentiate between lesions. However, as curvature is a local feature and a second order differential quantity, simply inspecting the curvature at a point is not sufficient. In this paper, we propose to inspect a local neighbourhood around a candidate point using curvature maps. This candidate point is pre-identified using the geodesic centroid of a surface patch containing vertices with positive point...[Show more]
