Publication ID: ICY-O4Z7H2

Short Description

Perona & Malik anisotropic diffusion for Icy, based on ImgLib2. An Icy plugin based on ImgLib2 that implements Perona and Malik anisotropic diffusion. This algorithm implements the so-called anisotropic diffusion scheme of Perona & Malik, 1990, with imglib. For details on the anisotropic diffusion principles, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anisotropic_diffusion, and the original paper: Perona and Malik. Scale-Space and Edge Detection Using Anisotropic Diffusion. IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (1990) vol. 12 pp. 629-639

Implementation


This implementation uses Imglib for its core. Filtering is done in place, and a call to the process() method does only one iteration of the process on the given image. This allow to change all parameters at each iteration if desired.
This implementation is dimension generic: the filtering is done considering a 3x3 neighborhood for a 2D image, a 3x3x3 neighborhood for a 3D image, and so on.

For every pixel of the image, the contribution of all close neighbors in a cube (whatever is the dimensionality) around the central pixel is considered. Image gradient is evaluated by finite differences in direction of the neighbor currently inspected. The value of this component of the gradient is used to compute the diffusion coefficient, through a function that must implements the DiffusionFunction interface. Users can specify their own function. Two functions are offered, taken from Perona and Malik original paper: StrongEdgeEnhancer and WideRegionEnhancer.

This implementation is multithreaded.
