Two major challenges faced in active contours are poor capture range and high sensitivity towards noise. Recently, the concept of tensor vector convolution (TVF) was introduced and shown to be promising in handling these challenges. However, in the presence of high noise levels, TVF may have difficulty in converging to the desired object boundary, particularly if the distance is great between the initial contour and the object boundary. To tackle this challenge, the concept of a multi-scale… CONTINUE READING
