A multiphase logic framework for multichannel image segmentation

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We propose a novel framework for energy-based multiphase segmentation over multiple channels. The framework allows the user to combine the information from each channel as the user sees fit, and thus allows the user to define how the information from each channel should influence the result. The framework extends the two-phase Logic Framework [J. Vis. Commun. Image R. 16 (2005) 333-358] model. The logic operators of the Logic Framework are used to define objective functions for multiple phases and a condition is defined that prevents conflict between energy terms. This condition prevents local minima that may occur using ad hoc methods, such as summing the objective functions of each region.
