Directional gradient vector flow for snakes

Abstract

Snakes, or active contour models, have been widely used in image segmentation. However, most present snake models cannot discern between positive and negative step edges. In this paper, a new type of dynamic external force for snakes named directional gradient vector flow (DGVF) is proposed to solve this problem by incorporating directional gradient… (More)
