In this paper, we propose a modified multiphase Chan-Vese model which is applied to the medical image segmentation of knee joints. Firstly, according to the anatomical structures and intensity distributions of knee joints in horizontal section, we present a new energy functional to keep the evolving curves just as the same relative location as the initial ones. This measure corrects the mistakes during segmentation and ensures the veracity of segmentation results. Then another interior energy… CONTINUE READING
