Region Competition via Local Watershed Operators

H. Tek, F. Akova, A. Ayvacy
2005 IEEE Computer Society Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR'05)  
Then, they are added to (or subtracted from) the deformable models via a measure computed from two terms: (i) statistical fit of regions to the models, region competition; (ii) smoothness of such fits,  ...  Here, we propose that watershed regions can be used as operators in region-based deformable models. These regions are computed only when the deformable models reach them.  ...  Figure 3 . 3 This figure illustrates the deformation of a contour C via regions computed via local watershed operators. (a) a curve C representing a object O.  ...

Local Watershed Operators for Image Segmentation [chapter]

Hüseyin Tek, Hüseyin Can Aras
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In addition, we show that this local computation of watershed regions can be used as an operator in other segmentation techniques such as seeded region growing, region competition or markers-based watershed  ...  In this paper, we propose local watershed operators for the segmentation of medical structures.  ...  We have implemented a rather simpler version of region competition via watershed operators.  ...
