HUMAN VISUAL PERCEPTION, GESTALT PRINCIPLES AND DUALITY REGION-CONTOUR - Application to Computer Image Analysis of Human Cornea Endothelium

Abstract

The human visual system is far more efficient than a computer to analyze images, especially when noise or poor acquisition process make the analysis impossible by lack of information. To mimic the human visual system, we develop algorithms based on the gestalt theory principles: proximity and good continuation. We also introduce the notion of mosaic that we reconstruct with those principles. Mosaics can be defined as geometry figures (squares, triangles), or issued from a contour detection system or a skeletonization process. The application presented here is the detection of cornea endothelial cells. They present a very geometric structure that give enough information for a non expert to be able to perform the same analysis as the ophthalmologist, that mainly consists on counting the cells and evaluating the cell density.
