This paper presents a new method in a variational level set framework for ultrasound images segmentation. The conventional intensity gradient based methods have had limited success on ultrasound images. Phase based methods, which are theoretically intensity-invariant, offer a good alternative. The proposed approach uses a speed term based on local phase derived from the monogenic signal. In order to confront more the speckle noise and local changes of intensity, the proposed phase based… CONTINUE READING
