We present a novel region-based active contour model that segments one or more image regions that are visually similar to an object of interest, said prior. The region evolution equation of our model is defined by a simple heuristic rule and it is not derived by minimizing an energy functional, as in the classic variational approaches. The prior and the… CONTINUE READING
