Fuzzy clustering techniques have been widely used in automated image segmentation. However, since the standard fuzzy c-means (FCM) clustering algorithm does not consider any spatial information, it is highly sensitive to noise. In this paper, we present an extension of the FCM algorithm to overcome this drawback, by incorporating spatial neighborhood… CONTINUE READING
