In this paper, we present a novel level set method for image segmentation. The proposed method models the local image intensities by Gaussian distributions with different means and variances. Based on the maximum a posteriori probability (MAP) rule, we define a local Gaussian distribution fitting energy with level set functions and local means and variances as variables. The means and variances of local intensities are considered as spatially varying functions. Therefore, our method is able to… CONTINUE READING
