Active Contour Driven by Edge and Region Image Fitting Energy
In this paper, we propose a novel edge and region-based active contour model. We consider geodesic curve and region-based model, and evolve a contour based on global information. Moreover, we add to the level set regularization term in the energy functional to ensure accurate computation and avoids expensive re-initialization of the level set function. Experiments on synthetic and real images show desirable performances of our method.
