Segmentation of anatomical structures via minimal surface extraction using gradient-based metrics is a popular approach, but exhibits some limits in the case of weak or missing contour information. We propose a new framework to define metrics, robust to missing image information. Given an object of interest we combine gray-level information and knowledge… CONTINUE READING
