Paper Abstract

A new method of minimal fuzzy entropy segmentation is introduced. It adopts a new membership function for the consistency and concentricity in the object and its background. A new 2D fuzzy entropy thresholding method is also developed, which is based on 2D gray historgram. The gray values of every pixel and its neighboring region are used in this 2D method. The experimental results show that the minimal fuzzy entropy method is very useful in the segmentation of some images and the 2D method has a good performance of resisting noise and good robustness. The segmentatiaon of using 2D is much better than 1D for most images, and the new method can be easily extended to other 1D entropy imaging thresholding.
