Abstract

Region growing algorithms, including seeded region growing, are a widely employed technique used in image segmentation problems. It is common for region growing techniques to employ queue based techniques that sequentially add pixels to regions. These algorithms are very flexible, but it is sometimes desirable to be able to apply some constraints to the growing process that reflect some higher level knowledge about the problem. This paper describes a technique that constrains (regularizes) the border smoothness of a growing region using a polygonal representation and provides some results illustrating a possible application. The technique can be usefully combined with traditional, unregularized techniques
