Paper Abstract

Using thresholding techniques it is possible to separate between contiguous non-homogeneous patches with different power levels. When the power levels of the patches are similar if not equal, the global histogram of the patches is unimodal and the thresholding approach becomes very difficult if not impossible. In this paper, we propose to use a statistical procedure to separate between contiguous non-homogeneous patches with similar power levels but different data statistics. The procedure separates different regions by distinguishing between their data probability distributions. The procedure is based on the Ozturk algorithm which uses the sample order statistics for the approximation of univariate distributions.
