Author Affiliations +
Extract tissue from a computer aided tomography (CT) image is decided by segmentation. In this paper, a method to select multi-threshold automatically from gray level histogram for image segmentatin is presented. With a hierarchical data structure, we can not only obtain the better results of multithresholding, but also speed up the processing operations. Experimental results have shown that our algorithm is more effective for the CT image segmentation.
