Abstract

One possible representation for regions of interest is by their contours. In many applications one would like to match these contours, e.g. to calculate the thickness of the left ventricule walls when they undergo large dilations. The difficulty of the problem arises since the matching contours are of different sizes and have gone under elastic deformations. We propose an optimal method to match elastic contours. The method is based on dynamic programing and on some ideas borrowed from stereo matching where occlusions correspond to contour regions that have no match after the deformation.
