Summary
In this paper, we present a Delaunay refinement algorithm for 4- dimensional (3D+t) segmented images. The output mesh is proved to consist of sliver-free simplices. Assuming that the hyper-surface is a closed smooth manifold, we also guarantee faithful geometric and topological approximation. We implement and demonstrate the effectiveness of our method on publicly available segmented cardiac images.
