This paper presents a new deformable model capable of segmenting images with multiple complex objects and deep concavities. The method integrates a shell algorithm, an active contour model and two active convex hull models. The shell algorithm automatically inscribes every image object into a single convex curve. Every curve is evolved to the boundary's vicinity by the exact solution of a specific form of the heat equation. Further, if re-parametrization is applied at every time step of the… CONTINUE READING
