Connected-Tube MPP Model for Unsupervised 3D Fiber Detection
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2020.14.COIMG-305  Published OnlineJanuary 2020

In this paper, we extend our previous 2D connected-tube marked point process (MPP) model to a 3D connected-tube MPP model for fiber detection. In the 3D case, a tube is represented by a cylinder model with two spherical areas at its ends. The spherical area is used to define connection priors that encourage connection of tubes that belong to the same fiber. Since each long fiber can be fitted by a series of connected short tubes, the proposed model is capable of detecting curved long tubes. We present experimental results on fiber-reinforced composite material images to show the performance of our method.
