Evaluation of a generalized template matching procedure

Australasian Physical & Engineering Sciences in Medicine 9(4): 180-187
Evaluation of a generalized template matching procedure
Automatic definition of a region of interest in a medical image is made difficult by the fact that the required regions are often poorly defined. Boundaries may be obvious when viewed as a whole but locally may be fuzzy and discontinuous. Template matching can make use of global information and so detect the presence of poorly defined objects. However, the use of 2-d representations of objects as templates is unworkable owing to the large number of alternative forms of the objects. A form of template matching that avoids this problem has been described previously. Implementation of this method is described and it's performance compared with that of methods based on the use of local feature detectors.
