A new minimum variance region growing algorithm for image segmentation

  title={A new minimum variance region growing algorithm for image segmentation},
  author={Chantal Revol-Muller and Michel Jourlin},
  journal={Pattern Recognition Letters},
Region growing is a very useful technique for image segmentation. Its efficiency mainly depends on its aggregation criterion. In the present paper, a new algorithm is proposed with a homogeneity criterion based on an adequate tuning between spatial neighbourhood and histogram neighbourhood. It differs from other techniques by reconsidering the pixel (or voxel) assignments on each step by a process which minimizes variance through special dilations. Thus, the region created by an initial seed… CONTINUE READING
