Binarization of Phase Contrast Volume Images of Fibrous Materials: A Case Study
2009 (English)In: Proceedings of International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP 2009), INSTICC Press , 2009, 148-153 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we present a method for segmenting phase contrast volume images of fibrous materials into fibre and background. The method is based on graph cut segmentation, and is tested on high resolution X-ray microtomography volume images of wood fibres in paper an composites. The new method produces better results than a standard method based on edge-preserving smoothing and hysteresis thresholding. The most important improvement is that the proposed method handles thick and collapsed fibres more accurately than previous methods.
