In this paper we present an object boundary detection system using an off-the-shelf available 3D stereo monitor. Instead of implementing algorithms, the system’s image processing is based on utilizing the polarization feature of liquid-crystal display and the way the image is displayed on the 3D monitor to enhance object boundary. The users can view the enhanced object contour through a polarization glasses in real-time, which can be also recorded using a camera for further processing. A software is developed for user interaction and providing feedback to obtain the best detection results. The effectiveness of the proposed system is demonstrated using some medical and biological images. The proposed system has the advantages of real-time high speed processing, almost no numerical computation, and robustness to noise over the traditional methods using image processing algorithms.
