A PDE approach for thickness, correspondence, and gridding of annular tissues

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A novel approach for computing point correspondences and grids within annular tissues is presented based on a recently introduced technique for computing thickness in such regions. The solution of Laplace’s equation provides implicit correspondence trajectories between the bounding surfaces. Pairs of partial differential equations are then efficiently solved within an Eulerian framework for thickness, from which concentric surfaces can be constructed. Point correspondences are then computed between the outer surfaces and any surface within, providing a gridding of the annular tissue. Examples are shown for two-dimensional short-axis images of the left ventricle and three-dimensional images of the cortex.
