Interactive image segmentation by improved maximal similarity based region merging

In medical image processing, interactive image segmentation is an important part, because it can obtain accurate segment results with less human effort compared with manual scribing. We proposed an improved algorithm of maximal similarity based region merging, compared with the algorithm proposed in our algorithm use SLIC superpixels segmentation to obtain presegmented regions, using SLIC superpixles, it is easy to control the number of presegmentation regions. We also introduce the texture features differeces while rigion merging, so we can obtain the accuracy of similarity measurement. Experimental results show that our algorithm can obtain comparable results.
