    Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has revolutionized radiology in past four decades. MR image edge detection can identify anatomy boundaries and extract features for image analysis applications like segmentation and recognition of anatomy structures. Traditional MR image edge detection methods directly identify discontinuities in MR image domain wit... Show More
