Hind Rostom Mohamed, Ameer A. Mohammed Baqer Al-shammaa . Contour with Connected Components and Mesh Surface for Skin Image Segmentation. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 6, 2 ( September 2013), 48-52. DOI=10.5120/ijais13-451023
In the present paper, a Skin image segmentation method based on Contour with Connected Components and Mesh Surface is proposed. The proposed scheme is tested successfully on a large set of images. The performance of the proposed detector compares favorably both computationally and qualitatively, in comparison contour detector with Connected Components and Mesh Surface which are also based on surround influence. The last stage includes Extraction of connected components skin image edge segmentation. The proposed scheme serves as a low cost preprocessing step for high level tasks, such as shape based recognition and image retrieval. The experimental results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
