Abstract:

A computer-assisted endoscopic analysis is intended and facilitates the diagnosis process. Segmentation of the image is an important step and a novel approach is proposed to segment clinical endoscopic images based on homogeneity and color feature hue. In the first stage, the regions are segmented using a peak-finding algorithm on a 2-D histogram of homogeneity and intensity values. In the second stage, histogram analysis of the color feature hue is performed to subdivide the segmented regions obtained from the first stage. The subdivisions of different segmented regions having similar CIE L a b color measure are merged. The proposed scheme was evaluated on a database of clinical endoscopic images.
