High-Speed Snake Algorithm For Tracking A Microorganism

Summary

Active Contour method (Snake method) is one of a candidate for cell image processing. Though our laboratory has proposed a high-speed algorithm suitable for high-speed vision system, it has a drawback that all cells in the frame are extracted. Thus we proposed a novel Active Contour model to extract a single cell continuously by using the fact that the total intensity emitted by a single cell is constant independent of the cell attitude.
