Boundary Detection in Medical Images

Principal Investigator: Ghassan Hamarneh

We have applied the application of active contour models for the segmentation of oral lesions in medical color images acquired from the visual part of the light spectrum. The aim is to assist the clinical expert in locating potentially cancerous cases for further analysis.
