Abstract
C-V model has the advantage of being able to detect boundaries of objects that are not defined by gradient. However, when detecting these types of edges, the C-V model only considers the average value of each region without local information. As a result, its segmentation result may exist errors, when detecting non-gradient defined boundaries. In order to overcome this problem, we modify the fitting term of classical C-V model with an extra weight. This weight can control the relative height of zero-level contour, so the new method can decrease the segmentation errors. Experiments show that the new model can obtain more accurate results and segment multi-phase images by setting proper weights.
