This paper presents an extension of our recently introduced MAC model to deal with the initialization dependency problem that commonly appears in edge-based approaches. Its dynamic force field, unique bidirectionality, and constrained diffusion-based level set evolution provide great freedom in contour initialization and show significant improvements in initialization independency compared to other edge-based techniques. It can handle more sophisticated topological changes than splitting anddoi:10.1109/tip.2009.2032891 pmid:19775969 fatcat:ntxdrxuvcvfynnsy7xj6ugqeyy
