The purpose of this paper is to describe a framework for evaluating image segmentation algorithms. Image segmentation consists of object recognition and delineation. For evaluating segmentation methods, three factors precision (reproducibility), accuracy (agreement with truth), and efficiency (time taken) – need to be considered for both recognition and delineation. To assess precision, we need to choose a figure of merit (FOM), repeat segmentation considering all sources of variation, and… CONTINUE READING
