Ridge Detection by Image Filtering Techniques: A Review and an Objective Analysis: review

Abstract : Ridges (resp., valley) are the useful geometric features due to their wide varieties of applications, mainly in image analysis problems such as object detection, image segmentation, scene understanding, etc. Many characterizations have contributed to formalize the ridge notion. The signification of each characterization rely however on its actual application. The objective analysis of ridge characterized as thin and complex image structure is thus essentially important, for choosing which parameter’s values correspond to the suitable configuration to obtain accurate results and optimal performance. In this article an extensive analysis followed by a supervised and objective comparison of different filtering-based ridge detection techniques is led. Furthermore, the optimal parameter configuration of each filtering techniques aimed for image salient feature analysis tool have been objectively investigated, where each chosen filter’s parameters corresponds to the width of the desired ridge or valley. At last, the comparative evaluations and analysis results are reported on both synthetic images, distorted with various types of noises and real images.
