J. J. Dijkers, C. van Wijk, F. M. Vos, J. Florie, Y. C. Nio, H. W. Venema, R. Truyen, L. J. van Vliet
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We evaluate our method by comparing the automated size measurement with those of two radiologists using scans of a colon phantom.  ...  We present an automatic method for measuring the polyp size. The method is based on a robust segmentation method that grows a surface patch over the entire polyp surface starting from a seed.  ...  The size measurements for polyps are based upon the segmented patches. The edges of these patches are projected along the polyp axis onto a plane.  ...

Segmentation based on measures of contrast, homogeneity, and region size

Sankar K. Pal, Nikhil R. Pal
1987 IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics  
Abstract -Two algorithms are described for automatic image segmenta tion using a "homogeneity" measure and "Contrast" measure defined on the cooccurrence matrix of the image.  ...  The measure of contrast involves the concept of logarithmic response (adaptibility with background inten sity) of the human visual system.  ...  The following algorithm introduces the concept of size of regions into the composite measure g K K1 (12) and thereby attempts to eliminate the need of a separate merging phase.Letus define where A R size  ...

Evaluation of Segmentation Techniques Using Region Size and Boundary Information [chapter]

D. P. Dogra, A. K. Majumdar, S. Sural
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A measure is proposed to evaluate four well referred segmentation algorithms. The metric proposed in this work is composed of both size and boundary of segments.  ...  In computer vision, unsupervised segmentation algorithms, although of great interest, often suffer from lack of a well-defined measure to evaluate.  ...  Thus, a measure that considers both size and boundary of regions can be of great use in defining segmentation accuracy.  ...
