Learning to Segment Neurons with Non-local Quality Measures [chapter]

Thorben Kroeger, Shawn Mikula, Winfried Denk, Ullrich Koethe, Fred A. Hamprecht
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Segmentation schemes such as hierarchical region merging or correllation clustering rely on edge weights between adjacent (super-)voxels.  ...  This ignores that a few local mistakes (tiny boundary gaps) can cause catastrophic global segmentation errors.  ...  We would like to thank Harald Hess and C.

A Randomized Ensemble Approach to Industrial CT Segmentation

Hyojin Kim, Jayaraman J. Thiagarajan, Peer-Timo Bremer
2015 2015 IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV)  
Tuning the models and parameters of common segmentation approaches is challenging especially in the presence of noise and artifacts.  ...  We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach using a set of noise and artifact rich CT images from baggage security and show that it significantly outperforms existing solutions in this area.  ...  Instead, we introduce a new ensemble based segmentation framework that uses a simple bottom-up hierarchical segmentation with a randomized merge order to create multiple hypotheses, similar to the approach  ...
