A Context-Sensitive Active Contour for 2D Corpus Callosum Segmentation
We propose a new context-sensitive active contour for 2D corpus callosum segmentation. After a seed contour consisting of interconnected parts is being initialized by the user, each part will start to deform according to its own motion law derived from high-level prior knowledge, and is constantly aware of its own orientation and destination during the deformation process. Experimental results demonstrate the accuracy and robustness of our algorithm.
