A semi-automatic multiple-stage segmentation scheme of brainstem and cerebellum is proposed in this paper. This proposed scheme contains a modified scale-based fuzzy connectedness (FC) algorithm, a morphology operator, Chain code, and active contour mode (ACM). A modified scale-based FC is utilized to delivery a rough segmentation, a morphology operator and Chain code are used to compensate the uncompleted small regions and derive an initial contour, and ACM is employed to obtain the final… CONTINUE READING
