Tongue contour tracking in dynamic ultrasound via higher-order MRFs and efficient fusion moves

Abstract

Analyses of the human tongue motion as captured from 2D dynamic ultrasound data often requires segmentation of the mid-sagittal tongue contours. However, semi-automatic extraction of the tongue shape presents practical challenges. We approach this segmentation problem by proposing a novel higher-order Markov random field energy minimization framework. For… (More)
