Paper Title:
Proposal of Fast Implicit Level Set Scheme for Medical Image Segmentation Using the Chan and Vese Model
  Abstract

People living in the information age, are more and more attention to their lives. It is also said, social life is more important in present and future. The social life contains three fields. In this paper, we propose a new model for active contours to detect objects in a given medical image, in order to facilitate people to have medical treatment. The proposed method is based on techniques of piecewise constant and piecewise smooths Chan-Vese Model, semi-implicit additive operator splitting (AOS) scheme for image segmentation. Different from traditional models, our model uses the level set which are corresponding to ordinary differential equation (ODE). Our model has more improved characteristics than traditional models, such as: less sensibility of noise; unnecessary of re-initialization and high speed by the simplified ordinary differential function. Finally, we validate the proposed model by numerical synthetic and real images. The experimental results demonstrate that our model is at least two times more efficient than the widely used methods.
