Hybrid Deformable Modeling Methods
Department of CS and BME
Wednesday, May 3, 2006
Sage 3510 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Refreshments at 3:30 p.m.
Recent advances in deformable models have lead to new classes of methods that borrow the best features frorm level sets as well as traditional
parametric deformable models. In this talk I will first present a new class of such models termed Metamorphs whose formulation integrates shape,
intensity and texture by borrowing ideas from level set and traditional
parametric deformable models. These new models can be used in medical
segmentation and registration where organ boundaries are fuzzy and with no assumptions on the noise distribution. In the second part of the talk I will present body and face tracking methods based on the combination of discriminative and generative methods.
