MIAL

Groupwise Medial Axis Transform

Principal Investigator: Ghassan Hamarneh
PhD Student: Aaron Ward

We augment the traditional medial axis transform with an additional coordinate stored at each medial locus, indicating the confidence that the branch on which that locus lies represents signal and not noise. This confidence is calculated based on the support given to that branch by corresponding branches in other skeletons in the group. This method is used to produce a fuzzy skeleton and to perform intelligent pruning
