Traditional level set-based active contour models/snakes are widely applied to medical image segmentation. The main problems faced by those traditional models are that they cannot find the global minimum of the energy functionals and hardly handle the intensity inhomogeneities which often occur in medical images. In order to overcome the drawbacks mentioned above, we make use of a global minimization framework and the dual formulation of the total variation (TV) norm to solve a global variant… CONTINUE READING
