Medical image analysis, image segmentation, image registration, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, graph cuts, and optimal surface methods.


  • Opfront C++ Library, this open source software provides functionality to segment three-dimensional images with repeated use of optimal surfaces resulting in moving fronts, which adapts to structures within the images.
  • Meshing C++ Library, this open source software based on the CGAL library provides functionality to generate and visualize triangular and tetrahedral meshes.
