Paper Abstract

We apply the weak membrane model with optimization by mean field annealing to the direct segmentation of tomographic images. We also introduce models based on the minimum description length principle that include penalties for measurement error, boundary length, regions, and means. Outliers are prevented by upper and lower bound constraints on pixel values. Several models are generalized to three-dimensional images. The superiority of our models to convolution back projection is demonstrated experimentally.
