Introduction

- Morphology: a branch of biology dealing with the form and structure of creatures
- Mathematical morphology:
- Extract image components based on shape

e.g. boundaries, skeletons, convex hull, etc

- Image denoise

e.g. reduce noise after edge detection

Roger S. Gaborski

Binary Morphological Processing

Non-linear image processing technique

Order of sequence of operations is important

Linear: (3+2)*3 = (5)*3=15

3*3+2*3=9+6=15

Non-linear: (3+2)2 = (5)2 =25 [sum, then square]

(3)2 + (2)2 =9+4=13 [square, then sum]

Based on geometric structure

Used for edge detection, noise removal and feature extraction

Used to ‘understand’ the shape/form of a binary image

Roger S. Gaborski

Image – Set of Pixels

Basic idea is to treat an object within an image as a set of pixels (or coordinates of pixels)

In binary images

Background pixels are set to 0 and appear black

Foreground pixels (objects) are 1 and appear white

Translation of Object A by vector b

Define Translate object A by vector b:

At = { t I2 : t = a+b, a A }

Where I2is the two dimensional image space that contains the image

Definition of DILATION is the UNION of all the translations:

A B = U {t I2 : t = a+b, a A} for all b’s in B

Roger S. Gaborski

DILATION

A

A1= A B

B

B

a

a

Object B is one point located at (a,0) A1: Object A is translated by object B

Since dilation is the union of all the translations, A B = U Atwhere the set union U is for all the b’s in B, the dilation of rectangle A in the positive x direction by a results in rectangle A1 (same size as A, just translated to the right)

Roger S. Gaborski

8

DILATION – B has 2 Elements

A

A2 A1

(part of A1 is under A2)

-a a -a a

Object B is 2 points, (a,0), (-a,0)

There are two translations of A as result of two elements in B

Dilation is defined as the UNION of the objects A1 and A2.

NOT THE INTERSECTION

DILATION

Image (A)

SE (B)

Round Structuring Element (SE) can be interpreted

as rolling the SE around the contour of the object.

½ width of the SE

imdilate

- IM2 = IMDILATE(IM,NHOOD) dilates the image IM, where NHOOD is a
- matrix of 0s and 1s that specifies the structuring element
- neighborhood. This is equivalent to the syntax IIMDILATE(IM,
- STREL(NHOOD)). IMDILATE determines the center element of the
- neighborhood by FLOOR((SIZE(NHOOD) + 1)/2).

Dilation and Erosion

DILATION: Adds pixels to the boundary of an object

EROSIN: Removes pixels from the boundary of an object

Number of pixels added or removed depends on size and shape of structuring element

Combinations

In most morphological applications dilation and erosion are used in combination

May use same or different structuring elements

Roger S. Gaborski

28

Morphological Opening and Closing

Opening of A by B

A o B = (AO B) B; imopen(A, B)

Erosion of A by B, followed by the dilation of the result by B

Closing of A by B

A B = (A B) O B; imclose(A, B)

Dilation of A by B, followed by the erosion of the result by B

Roger S. Gaborski

29

MATLAB Function strel

strel constructs structuring elements with various shapes and sizes

Syntax: se = strel(shape, parameters)

Example:

se = strel(‘octagon’, R);

R is the dimension – see help function

Roger S. Gaborski

- Erosion of A by B, followed by the dilation of the result by B

Erosion- if any element of structuring element overlaps with background output is 0

f (original image)

fe (eroded image)

FIRST - EROSION

>> se = strel('square', 20);

fe = imerode(f,se);

figure, imagesc(fe),title('fe')

Roger S. Gaborski

31

Outputs 1 at center of SE when at least one element of SE overlaps object

fe (eroded image)

fd (dilated image)

SECOND - DILATION

>> se = strel('square', 20);

fd = imdilate(fe,se);

What if we increased size of SE for DILATION operation??

se = 25 se = 30

se = strel('square', 30);

fd = imdilate(fe,se);

figure, imagesc(fd),title('fd')

se = strel('square', 25);

fd = imdilate(fe,se);

figure, imagesc(fd),title('fd')

Hit or Miss Transformation

Usage: to identify specified configuration of pixels, e.g.

isolated foreground pixels

pixels at end of lines (end points)

Definition

A B = (A B1) ∩(AcB2)

A eroded by B1, intersects A complement eroded by B2 (two different structuring elements: B1 , B2)

Roger S. Gaborski

Hit or Miss Example

Find cross shape pixel configuration:

MATLAB Function: C = bwhitmiss(A, B1, B2)

Hit or Miss

Have all the pixels in B1 (hits all pixels in B1), but none of the pixels in B2 (misses all pixels in B2)

More precisely, hit-and-miss operation

Roger S. Gaborski

Pixels that have east and south neighbors (Hits) and no NE, N, NW, W, SW Pixels (Misses)

bwmorph(f, operation, n)

Implements various morphological operations based on combinations of dilations, erosions and look up table operations.

f: input binary image

operation: a string specifying the desired operation

n: a positive integer specifying iteration times (default: 1)

Roger S. Gaborski

50

Example 1: thinning

- To reduce binary objects or shapes in an image to strokes whose width is 1 pixel
- Matlab implementation

>> f = imread(‘fingerprint_cleaned.tif’);

>> g = bwmorph(f, ‘thin’, 1);

>> g2 = bwmorph(f, ‘thin’, 2);

>> g3 = bwmorph(f, ‘thin’, Inf);

Grayscale Morphological Processing

Similar to spatial convolution

Dilation: local maximum operator

Erosion: local minimum operator

Roger S. Gaborski

55

Grayscale Morphological Processing

Morphological Gradient:

Dilated image – eroded image

Half-gradient by erosion:

Image – eroded image

Half-gradient by dilation:

Image – dilated image

Roger S. Gaborski

59

Morphological Gradient: Dilated image – Eroded image

Increase size of SE: more difference area in morph-gradient image

se = ones(7)

Roger S. Gaborski

61

Directional GradientsFunction of Structure Element

horizontal_gradient

= imdilate(I,seh) - imerode(I,seh);

vertical_gradient

= imdilate(I,sev) - imerode(I,sev);

Where

I : the input image

seh = strel([1 1 1]);

sev = strel([1;1;1]);

Label connected components

- How many objects

in the image?

- 6 squares
- 3 disks
- 7 letters of “a”
- 9 vertical bars
- Each object

= a connected region/component

Removing background

resulted in loss of small stripes

Used gray scale gradient
