Achieving Quality in Software: Proceedings of the third international conference on achieving quality in software, 1996

Software program caliber is a generalised assertion tough to agree or disagree with till an actual definition of the idea that of "Software caliber" is reached when it comes to measurable amounts. regrettably, for the software program know-how the fundamental query of: • what to degree; • easy methods to degree; • whilst to degree; • how one can take care of the knowledge acquired are nonetheless unanswered and also are heavily dependant at the box of program.

The former model the inner topology of the objects whereas the latter fit the edges of the objects. The Topological Active Net model and its extension to 3D, that is, the Topological Active Volume (TAV) model [3], were developed as an extension of the original active net model. It solves some intrinsic problems to the deformable models such as the initialization problem. The model deformation is controlled by energy functions in such a way that the mesh energy has a minimum when the model is over the objects of the scene.

For instance, Ballerini [4] has developed the “genetic snakes”, this is, snakes that minimize their energy by means of genetic algorithms. In [6] the authors have proved the superiority of a global search method by means of a Genetic Algorithm (GA) in the optimization of the Topological Active Nets in 2D images. The results showed that the GA is less sensitive to noise than the usual greedy optimizations and does not depend on the parameter set or the mesh size. Regarding 3D images, Jones and Metaxas [7] have used deformable contours to estimate organ boundaries.

Section 2 introduces the basis of the TAV model. Section 3 briefly explains the GA used in the model optimization. Section 4 22 J. Novo et al. details the combination with the greedy methodology to perform a link cutting procedure and an automatic net division procedure. In Section 5 representative examples are included to show the capabilities of the different approaches. Finally, Section 6 expounds the conclusions. 2 Brief Description of Topological Active Volumes The Topological Active Volumes (TAV) model is an active contour model focused on extraction and modelization of volumetric objects in a 3D scene [3].
