A multiresolution framework for ultrasound image segmentation by combinative active contours

Abstract

We propose a novel multiresolution framework for ultrasound image segmentation in this paper. The framework exploits both local intensity and local phase information to tackle the degradations of ultrasound images. First, multiresolution scheme is adopted to build a Gaussian pyramid for each speckled image. Speckle noise is gradually smoothed out at higher… (More)
