Effective and elegant procedures have recently appeared in the published literature for determining by computer a highly variable blob boundary in a noisy image [1]-[3]. In this paper we point out that if the blob boundary is modeled as a Markov process and the additive noise is modeled as a white Gaussian noise field, then maximization of the joint… CONTINUE READING
