In this paper, we propose and evaluate six methods for the segmentation of skin lesions in dermoscopic images. This set includes some state of the art techniques which have been successfully used in many medical imaging problems (gradient vector flow (GVF) and the level set method of Chan et al.[(C-LS)]. It also includes a set of methods developed by the(More)
The Web has become a new information resource for the blind. However, Web accessibility is becoming worse, since page authors tend to care only for the visual appearance. We have developed an Accessibility Transcoding System to solve this problem. This system has the ability to transcode complete pages on annotated sites into totally accessible pages(More)
These days, accessibility-related regulations and guidelines have been accelerating the improvement of Web accessibility. One of the accelerating factors is the development and deployment of accessibility evaluation tools for authoring time and repair time. They mainly focus on creating compliant Web sites by analyzing the HTML syntax of pages, and report(More)
This paper presents an algorithm for estimating the local fractal dimension (LFD) of textured images. The algorithm is established by an experimental approach based on the blanket method. The proposed method uses the near optimum number of blankets to obtain the LFD for a small local window. The robustness of the proposed method to consistently estimate the(More)
This paper proposes number-driven perceptual segmentation of natural color images using a fuzzy-based hierarchical algorithm for an easy decision of the optimal segmentation result. A fuzzy-based homogeneity measure makes a fusion of the L*a*b* color features and the SGF texture features. Proposed hierarchical segmentation method is performed in four(More)
