Abstract: In this paper, we propose within the level set framework a region-based segmentation method using local image statistics. An isotropic spatial kernel is used to define locality. We use the Intersection of Confidence Intervals (ICI) approach to define a pixel dependant local scale for the estimation of image statistics. The obtained scale is based on estimated optimal scales, in the sense of the mean-square error of a Local Polynomials Approximation of the observed image conditional on the current segmentation. In other words, the scale is ‘optimal’ in the sense that it gives the best trade-off between the bias and the variance of the estimates. The proposed approach performs very well, especially on images with intensity inhomogeneities.
