Abstract
Live-wire-based image segmentation allows the user to select piece-wise globally optimal contour segments corresponding to a desired object boundary. However, the boundary extracted by live wire tends to deviate from the object boundary if other boundaries with strong gradient features are situated near a desirable object boundary. We present a new live-wire method based on the concept of embedded edge confidence to improve segmentation performance. Experimental results on medical images demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
