Inhomogeneity of intensity often appear in the cell images and hence image segmentation may face lots of problems. For the purpose of solving the problems brought about by cell images with inhomogeneity intensity, low contrast and edge blurring, this paper presents a new level set method. Our model combines an external energy function with a regular term. The former combines the prior information with edge gradient and region information of cell images, and the latter makes our function… CONTINUE READING
