**Statistics of Anatomic Geometry:Information Theory and**Automatic Model Building Carole Twining Imaging Science and Biomedical Engineering (ISBE) University of Manchester, UK Contributions from: Rhodri Davies, Stephen Marsland, Tim Cootes, Vlad Petrovic, Roy Schestowitz, & Chris Taylor**Overview**• Recap of Point Distribution/Statistical Shape Models PDMs/SSMs • Correspondence Problem: • Shape Representation & Correspondence • Correspondence & Statistics • Methods for establishing correspondence • Automatic Methods for Groupwise Shape Correspondence • Manipulating Correspondence not Shape • Minimum Description Length objective function • Optimisation • Extension to Images: • MDL Groupwise Registration • automatic models from unannotated image sets • Model Evaluation Criteria Slide 2**PCA**Model PDF Shape Space Point Distribution Models (PDMs)Statistical Shape Models (SSMs) Set of Shapes & Corresponding Points Slide 3**Shape Space**Shape & Appearance Space Adding Image Information Slide 4**Adding Image Information**• Include image information from whole region • Correlation between shape & texture Shape & Texture Model Shape Model Slide 5**Active Shape & Appearance Models**AAM Search ASM Search Slide 6**Shape Representation & Correspondence**• Non-Local Representations • Fourier descriptors (e.g., SPHARM) • Medial descriptors (e.g., MREPS) • Local Representations • Point based (e.g., PDMs/SSMs) • Common Representation of training set => Correspondence • Non-local tends to give implicit correspondence • Point based gives explicit correspondence • Why does the correspondence matter? Slide 8**Shape Space**Shape Space Correspondence & Statistics Varying correspondence varies the shape statistics Slide 9**Establishing Correspondence**• Manual landmarking • Arbitrary parameterisations • Kelemen, Hill, Baumberg & Hogg • Shape features • Wang, Brett • Image registration • models from deformation field • Christensen, Joshi, Lavalle, Reuckert, Twining Slide 10**Manual Methods for Correspondence**• Manual Landmarks • Interpolate for dense correspondence • May need to adjust • Problems: • Time-consuming • Subjective • Requires expert anatomical knowledge • Very difficult in 3D Slide 11**Arc-Length Parameterisation**• Equally-space landmarks around each shape (Baumberg & Hogg) Slide 12**Shape Features**• e.g. Curvature-based methods • Intuitive • But: • What about regions without such features? • Not really groupwise, since depends on local properties of each shape • Is it really the best correspondence? Slide 13**Automatic Groupwise Correspondence**Desirable features: • Groupwise: • Depends on whole set of shapes • Automatic – little or no user intervention • 2D & 3D • Runs in reasonable time! Slide 15**Automatic Groupwise Correspondence**Optimisation Problem Framework: • Method of manipulating correspondence: • 2D & 3D • Objective function: • quantifies the ‘quality’ of the correspondence • Optimization Scheme Slide 16**Shape Points**Correspondence Points Manipulating Correspondence • Point-to-Point: Shape 1 Shape 2 Varying correspondence varies shape! Vary correspondence but not shape! Slide 18**Manipulating Correspondence**• Continuous parameterisation of shape • Re-parameterising varies correspondence Slide 19**Sphere & Spherical Polar coordinates**Shape Manipulating Correspondence • Generalises to 3D • Map surface to parameter sphere - no folds or tears • Varying parameterisation on sphere Slide 20**Shape Space**Shape Space Objective Function • Varying Correspondence = Varying Statistics • Objective function based on model probability density function • number of model modes • compactness • quality of fit to training data • number of model parameters Slide 22**Shape Space**MDL Objective Function • Transmit training set as encoded binary message • Shannon: • Set of possible events {i} with probabilities {pi} • Optimal codeword length for event i: -log pi • Encode whole training set of shapes: • Encoded Model: mean shape, model modes etc • Reconstruct shape space and model pdf • Each training shape: pi from model pdf • Reconstruct all training shapes • MDL Objective function = total length of message Slide 23**MDL Objective Function**• Fit between model pdf and training data: • Probabilities for training points => better the fit, shorter the message • Too complex a model: • model parameter term large • Too few modes: • Bad fit to data & large residual • Badly chosen modes: • Bad fit to data Slide 24**Optimisation**• Genetic algorithm search (Davies et al, 2002) • All parameters optimised simultaneously • Slow, scales badly with no of examples • More recent, multi-scale, multi-resolution approaches: • better convergence • fast enough for routine use • scales approximately linearly with no of examples (Davies et al, IPMI 2003) Slide 25**Results**• Quantitatively better results compared to SPHARM • Differences tend to be subtle • Comparing techniques, have to go beyond visual inspection (see section on Model Evaluation Criteria) Slide 26**Image & Shape Correspondence**• Groups of Shapes: groupwise dense correspondence • statistical models of shape variability • analysis of variation across & between populations • assist in analysing unseen examples (ASM & AAM) • Groups of Images: groupwise dense correspondence = groupwise registration • statistical models of shape & appearance • as above • MDL technique for correspondence can be applied to both (Twining et al 2005) Slide 28**Image Registration**• Spatial Correspondence between images • Shape variation • Warp one to another • Difference is texture variation • Repeat across group => Appearance model of image set Slide 29**Groupwise Image Registration**• MDL Objective Function • Combined shape & texture model • Define dense correspondence • triangulated points on each image & interpolate • Manipulate Correspondence • Increase resolution of mesh & repeat Slide 30**Results**• 104 2D brain slices • Appearance Model Slide 31**Model Evaluation Criteria**• Need to go beyond visual inspection, subtle differences • Generalisability: • the ability to represent unseen shapes/images which belong to the same class as those in the training set • Specificity: • the ability to only represent images similar to those seen in the training set • Quantitative comparison of models Slide 33**Training Set:**Sample Set from model pdf: General but not Specific Specific but not General Specificity and Generalization Space of Shapes/Images Slide 34**:distance on image/shape space**Specificity Training Set Sample Set Slide 35**Training Set**Generalisation Ability Sample Set Slide 36**Objective function**Specificity Generalisation Validation • Annotated/Registered Data • Perturb Registration Size of Perturbation Slide 37**Evaluating Brain Appearance Models**Slide 38**Summary**• Manipulating Correspondence • Shown to produce quantitatively better models • Large-scale Optimisation problem - so far, only linear models • Extension to other shape representation methods (e.g. MREPS) • Topology – manipulate parameter space: • simple, fixed topology • Multi-part objects • Differences tend to be subtle - go beyond visual inspection of results • Model evaluation criteria • Extension to groupwise image registration Slide 39**Resources & References**AAMs, ASMs • [1] T.
