This paper presents a localand global-statistics-based active contour model for image segmentation by applying the globally convex segmentation method. We first propose a convex energy functional with a local-Gaussian-distribution-fitting termwith spatially varyingmeans and variances and an auxiliary global-intensity-fitting term. A weight function that varies dynamically with the location of the image is applied to adjust the weight of the global-intensity-fitting term dynamically. The… CONTINUE READING
