Medial grey-level based representation for proteins in volume images

Sintorn, IM; Gedda, M; Mata, S; Svensson, S


We present an algorithm to extract a medial representation of proteins in volume images. The representation (MGR) takes into account the internal grey-level distribution of the protein and can be extracted without first segmenting the image into object and background. We show how MGR can facilitate the analysis of the structure of the proteins and thereby also classification. Results are shown on two types of protein images
