Statistical inference and medical image segmentation

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


    Image segmentation can be roughly presented as the grouping of individual image pixels into (meaningful/useful) partition of regions or objects. It is an important area common to a number of research fields such as image processing, computer vision and machine learning. Although a number of algorithms and approaches have been proposed, automated image segmentation continues to be a tantalizing and challenging problem. In this paper, we look at image segmentation as an inference problem and describe the Statistical Region Merging technique (Nock et al; 2004). We will further apply the technique in the segmentation of CT images.
