Paper Abstract

Statistical as well as adaptive clustering approaches are being currently used for both segmentation and vector quantization of medical images. However, a comparative evaluation of both approaches has rarely been done to identify the efficacy of such approaches to specific applications, for example, image segmentation and vector quantization. The rate distortion functions of three clustering algorithms, namely, the statistical based deterministic annealing, the adaptive fuzzy leader clustering algorithm, and LBG, have been computed for vector quantization using multi-scale vectors in the wavelet domain. Such comparative evaluation serves as a guide for proper selection of clustering algorithms for global codebook generation in vector quantization and for image segmentation.
