Abstract

In this paper, we propose an approach for multi-region segmentation based on a topological graph prior within a multi-level set (MLS) formulation. We consider topological graph prior information to evolve the contour based on a topological relationship presented via a graph relation. This novel method is capable of segmenting adjacent objects with very close gray level that would be difficult to segment correctly using standard methods. We describe our algorithm and show the graph prior technique to explain how it gives precise multi-region segmentation. We validate our algorithm with numerous abdominal and brain image databases and compare it to other multi-region segmentation methods to demonstrate its accuracy and computational efficiency.
