Abstract

Segmentation is an important step in many medical imaging applications and a variety of image segmentation techniques exist. One group of segmentation algorithms is based on clustering concepts. In this chapter we provide an overview of several fuzzy c-means based clustering approaches and their application to medical imaging. In particular we evaluate the conventional hard c-means and fuzzy c-means (FCM) approches as well as three computationally more efficient derivatives of fuzzy c-means: Fast FCM with random sampling, fast generalised FCM, and a new anisotropic mean shift based FCM.
