Image segmentation methods with length regularized edge sets are known to have segments whose endpoints either terminate perpendicularly to the boundary of the domain, terminate at a triple junction where three segments connect, or terminate at a free endpoint where the segment does not connect to any other edges. However, level set based segmentation methods are only able to capture edge structures which contain the first two types of segments. In this work, we propose an extension to the… CONTINUE READING
