This paper seeks to present a novel X‐ray system and associated image segmentation algorithm for imaging the below‐ground root structures of plants.
A matched filter design for segmenting the important root structures from the background clutter in the X‐ray images was presented.
The feasibility of root imaging and the applicability of matched filters to this problem domain have been demonstrated.
This research offers a novel approach over existing methods for in situ monitoring of root structures through the application of matched filters for image segmentation.
