Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a pseudo wavelet-based tagline detection method. The tagged MR image is transformed to the wavelet domain, and the prominent tagline coefficients are retained while others are eliminated. Significant stripes are extracted via segmentation, which are mixtures of tags and anatomical boundary that resembles line. A refinement step follows such that broken lines or isolated points are grouped or eliminated. Without assumption on tag models, our method extracts taglines automatically regardless their width and spacing. In addition, founded on the multi-resolution wavelet analysis, our method reconstructs taglines precisely and shows great robustness to various types of taglines.
