Segmentation and Surveying of Cutaneous Hemangiomas (bibtex)
by Sebastian Zambanini
Abstract:
This report presents an automatic method for the surveying of cutaneous hemangiomas by means of a fully automatic hemangioma segmentation and a ruler visible in the images to be examined. The segmentation of regions belonging to the hemangioma is accomplished with a pre-segmentation based on a perceptron followed by a postprocessing step where regions with untypical properties are rejected. The spatial resolution of the images is determined by computing the maximum euclidean distance between two marks of the ruler. Various experiments with the images gathered are reported, showing not only the satisfactory results on most of the images but also the problems arising on particular images.
