Abstract

Quality-guided phase unwrapping (QGPU) has been proven as an effective phase unwrapping method. As the QGPU assumes that the true phase map is continuous, it suffers from the discontinuity problem. To solve this problem, the windowed Fourier transform (WFT) based methods have been adopted to obtain effective quality measures. Nevertheless, in some special cases, using the quality maps from the WFT-based methods could not lead to a correct result. In this paper, we propose a method that incorporates the GVF snake model to assist the unwrapping process. This new method achieves better results than using the WFT-based methods directly in some discontinuous examples.
