Thinning on binary images is an iterative layer by layer erosion until only the “skeletons” of the objects are left. This paper presents an efficient parallel 3D surface–thinning algorithm. A three–subiteration strategy is proposed: the thinning operation is changed from iteration to iteration with a period of three according to the three deletion directions.
