                         exploits the notion of local structure thickness, orientation, and 
                         anisotropy as represented by the largest ellipse centered at each 
                         image pixel and within the same homogeneous region. The proposed 
                         method uses the normalized histogram of the local orientation (the 
                         angle of the ellipse) at regions of high anisotropy and thickness 
                         within a certain interval. It is shown that TSD is invariant to 
                         rotation and to some reasonable level of scale changes.

                         illustrate and validate the method.",
