Prior Knowledge, Level Set Representations & Visual Grouping

  title={Prior Knowledge, Level Set Representations & Visual Grouping},

In this paper, we propose a level set method for shape-driven object extraction. We introduce a voxel-wise probabilistic level set formulation to account for prior knowledge. To this end, objects are represented in an implicit form. Constraints on the segmentation process are imposed by seeking a projection to the image plane of the prior model modulo a similarity transformation. The optimization of a statistical metric between the evolving contour and the model leads to motion equations that… CONTINUE READING
