Abstract (EN)This paper presents a new method to extract tubular structures from bi-dimensional images. The core of the proposed algorithm is the computation of geodesic curves over a four-dimensional space that includes local orientation and scale. These shortest paths follow closely the centerline of tubular structures, provide an estimation of the radius and can deal robustly with crossings over the image plane. Numerical experiments on a database of synthetic and natural images show the superiority of the proposed approach with respect to several method based on shortest paths extractions.
