Techniques for image enhancement and segmentation of tomographic images of porus materials

Sheppard, Adrian; Sok, Robert; Averdunk, Holger


This article presents a three-stage approach, combining novel and traditional algorithms, for the segmentation of images of porous and composite materials obtained from X-ray tomography. The first stage is an anisotropic diffusion filter which removes noise while preserving significant features. The second stage applies the unsharp mask sharpening filter which enhances edges and partially reverses the smoothing that is often a consequence of tomographic reconstruction. The final stage uses a...[Show more]
