Abstract

We introduce a novel algorithm for medial surfaces extraction that is based on the density-corrected Hamiltonian analysis. The approach extracts the skeleton directly from a triangulated mesh and adopts an adaptive octree-based approach in which only skeletal voxels are refined to a lower level of the hierarchy, resulting in robust and accurate skeletons at extremely high resolution. The quality of the extracted medial surfaces is confirmed by an extensive set of experiments.
