In this paper, an unsupervised algorithm, called the Independent Histogram Pursuit (IHP), for segmenting dermatological lesions is proposed. The algorithm estimates a set of linear combinations of image bands that enhance different structures embedded in the image. In particular, the first estimated combination enhances the contrast of the lesion to(More)
In this paper, an unsupervised approach based on Evolving Vector Quantization (EVQ) is presented for enhancing dermatology images for skin lesion segmentation. Vector Quantization (VQ) as a famous compression technique has been widely used in image signal compression and speech signal compression. The EVQ algorithm extends the Linde, Buzo, and Gray (LBG)(More)
