Course Outline

Day 1 of 2

Importing and Visualizing Images

 

Objective: Import and display different types of images. Convert between image data types and formats to facilitate subsequent analysis steps. 

  • Importing and displaying images

  • Converting between image types

  • Visualizing results of processing

  • Exporting images

 

Preprocessing Images

 

Objective: Enhance images to simplify analysis and processing. Use common preprocessing techniques such as histogram-based contrast adjustment and noise filtering to improve segmentation.  

  • Improving image contrast 

  • Reducing noise in an image

  • Equalizing inhomogeneous background 

  • Processing images block by block 

 

Spatial Transformation and Image Registration

 

Objective: Compare two images with different scales and orientations by geometrically aligning them. 

  • Applying geometric transformations to images 

  • Aligning images using point mapping 

  • Automating intensity-based registration 

Automating Image Registration with Image Features

Objective:  Detect, extract, and match image features to automate image registration. 

  • Detecting and extracting features

  • Matching features to estimate geometric transformation between two images 

Day 2 of 2

Edge and Line Detection

 

Objective:  Detect edges of objects and extract boundary pixel locations. Detect objects by their shape. 

  • Detecting object edges 

  • Segmenting objects by finding straight lines and circles 

  • Performing batch analysis over sets of images 

 

Color and Texture Segmentation

 

Objective: Segment objects based on color and texture. Use statistical measures such as contrast and correlation to characterize texture features for image classification. 

  • Transforming between image color spaces 

  • Segmenting objects based on a color difference metric 

  • Using non-linear filters to segment objects based on texture 

  • Analyzing image texture using statistical measures 

  • Measuring texture similarity 

 

Feature Extraction

 

Objective: Analyze and modify objects' shape to improve segmentation results. Count and label the objects detected in an image. Extract object properties like area or centroid. 

  • Counting objects from a segmentation 

  • Measuring shape properties 

  • Using morphological operations to refine segmentation results 

  • Performing watershed segmentation to improve object separation
