Active Contours with Selective Local or Global Segmentation: A New Formulation and Level Set Method

K.H. Zhang, L.Zhang, H.H. Song and W. Zhou

Our paper mainly has two contributions:

The Level set formulation is as follows

The following is demonstration of the curve evolution according to the above formulation when it lies to all the possible positions in the image.

The algorithm flow diagram is as follows

The following are some demos about the experiments in our paper.

 

 

Some extensions: 

   Note: We eliminate the re-binarization procedure in the following algorithms. This regularization method is the same as that proposed by our paper Active Contours Driven by Local Image Fitting Energy.

 Our level set regularization method can be used to regularize the general level set formulation as follows:
