  • Semi-automatic segmentation approaches tend to overlook the problems caused by missing or incomplete image information. In such situations, powerful control mechanisms and intuitive modelling metaphors should be provided in order to make the methods practically applicable. Taking this problem into account, the usage of subdivision curves in combination with the simulation of edge attracted mass points is proposed as a novel way towards a more robust interactive segmentation methodology… CONTINUE READING
