Abstract

"This thesis applies Gradient Vector Flow Snakes to find the tumor border in melanoma and non-melanoma dermoscopy images. Snakes, or active contours, have been widely used in image processing applications especially for detecting object boundaries. The Gradient Vector Flow Snakes method provides a new external force and improves some problems associated with traditional snakes."--Abstract, page iii.
