Historically, mathematical morphology has primarily focused on the processing and analysis of two-dimensional image data. In this talk, I will survey a number of other areas where mathematical morphology has found fruitful application. I plan to address the following topics.
1. Volume processing and visualization.
Some examples are: morphological pyramids for multiresolution visualization of 3D medical data by maximum intensity projection; connected morphological operators for combined volumetric filtering and visualization; and volumetric segmentation and visualization by morphological active surface models or level sets.
2. Visual exploration of high-dimensional data.
Here there are numerous applications, such as watershed algorithms for fast reconstruction and visualization of brain networks; finding and exploring relevant subspaces in high-dimensional astronomical data; or filtering and visualization of tensor fields such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data.
