Flow3J - 3D Optical Flow in Java

 

Version 0.1b: First version. Some small problems fixed.

This page is a companion to my IEEE TMI paper: M. D. AbrÓmoff, and M.A. Viergever. Computation and Visualization of Three Dimensional Motion in the Orbit. IEEE Trans Med Imag., 2002. (accepted for publication!, after almost two years!).

Description

Flow3J implements an algorithm for the estimation of optical flow fields in three-dimensional 'image' volume sequences.

It also implements 2-D and 3-D scintillation rendering as a method of visualizing three-dimensional optical flow fields.

The picture on the right shows the three-dimensional motion of a rotating steak phantom in the left half of the image, and the steak itself in the right half of the image.

Downloading

Download Flow3J 0.1 now in ZIP format.

To run it, you will also need ImageJ. Download ImageJ (the most recent version) from the ImageJ website.

You can also download the sources.

By downloading, you indicate your agreement to the copyright and disclaimer note below.


Installation

Unzip the files to the ImageJ directory or folder. In Winzip, check "Use folder names".

Be sure that you end up (at the ImageJ level) with a plugins folder containing the of3d, volume and linearalgebra directories or foldersl. 


Use

To start, run ImageJ. Under the Plugins menu, you will see a new command:

Flow3J

From here on you are on your own.
