Abstract

In this paper, we presented a structure-adaptive B-snake model for segmenting the complex structures in medical images. A strategy of automatic control-point insertion, adaptive to the structure of the studied object, has been proposed. Furthermore, a method of minimum mean square energy (MMSE) is developed to iteratively estimate the position of those control points in the B-snake model. By applying the proposed structure-adaptive B-snake model to medical images, we show that our method is robust and accurate in object contour extraction.
