Abstract

We propose a polygonal snake segmentation technique adapted to objects that can be composed of several regions with gray-level fluctuations described by a priori unknown probability laws. This approach is based on a histogram equalization and on the minimization of a criterion without parameter to be tuned by the user. We demonstrate the efficiency of this approach, which has low computational cost, on synthetic and real images perturbed by different types of optical noise.
