Abstract
A new algorithm for segmenting color colonscopic images by fusing color, brightness, spatial distance and texture information is presented in this paper. It makes the fractal dimension (FD) as the measurement for texture feature in images and applies a stochastic clustering algorithm that uses pairwise similarity of elements. The clustering algorithm that is based on a new graph theoretical algorithm for the sampling of cuts in graphs, can obtain the optimal number of clusters automatically. The complexity of our method is lower, and its stochastic nature makes it robust against noise. More than 40 colonscopic images have been used to demonstrate the effectiveness of this new algorithm.
