A Review: Image Segmentation using Active Contours

Sheenam Adhlakha, Arvind Selwal


Image segmentation is the process of partitioning an image into into multiple segments or its constituent regions and objects, so as to change the representation of an image into something that is more meaningful and easier to analyze. Several general-purpose algorithms and techniques have been developed for image segmentation. Firstly, this paper describes the segmentation and use of active contours to detect the boundaries of the object whose boundaries are not defined. Then it describes the use of active contours in medical image segmentation.

Keywords: Active contours, energy minimization, segmentation, energy function, deformable models.
