Comparison of Morphological Pyramids for Multiresolution MIP Volume Rendering


73 Downloads (Pure)


We recently proposed a multiresolution representation for maximum intensity projection (MIP) volume rendering based on morphological adjunction pyramids which allow progressive refinement and have the property of perfect reconstruction. In this algorithm the pyramidal analysis and synthesis operators are composed of morphological erosion and dilation, combined with dyadic downsampling for analysis and dyadic upsampling for synthesis. Here we introduce an alternative pyramid scheme in which a morphological opening instead of an erosion is used for pyramidal analysis. As a result, the approximation accuracy when rendering from higher levels of the pyramid is improved.
