Robust Statistics Segmenter


Active contour segmentation using robust statistic.

Panels and their use

Segmentation Parameters: Parameters for robust statistics segmentation

  • Approximate volume(mL) (expectedVolume): The approximate volume of the object, in mL.

Auxiliary Parameters: Some auxiliary parameters to control the stop criteria.

  • Intensity Homogeneity[0-1.0] (intensityHomogeneity): What is the homogeneity of intensity within the object? Given constant intensity at 1.0 score and extreme fluctuating intensity at 0.

  • Boundary Smoothness[0-1.0] (curvatureWeight): Given sphere 1.0 score and extreme rough boundary/surface 0 score, what is the expected smoothness of the object?

  • Output Label Value (labelValue): Label value of the output image

  • Max running time(min) (maxRunningTime): The program will stop if this time is reached.

IO: Input/output parameters

  • Original Image (originalImageFileName): Original image to be segmented

  • Label Image (labelImageFileName): Label image for initialization

  • Output Volume (segmentedImageFileName): Segmented image
