This paper presents a method based on geometric active contours to segment and track biological cells in fluorescence videomicroscopy. To achieve robust segmentation of fluorescent cells with fuzzy boundaries, we use the region-based model introduced by Chan and Vese. The level set approach allows fully automatic initialization, detection of dividing cells and of cells entering the field of view during the sequence. However, the standard approach using only one level set function leads to… CONTINUE READING
