ABSTRACT
Ma and Sonka proposed a fully parallel 3D thinning algorithm which does not always preserve topology. We propose an algorithm based on P-simple points which automatically corrects Ma and Sonka's algorithm. As far as we know, our algorithm is the only fully parallel curve thinning algorithm which preserves topology.
INDEX TERMS
3D thinning algorithm, curve skeleton, digital topology, topology preservation.
