In medical imaging and other applications, it is often desirable to simultaneously segment multiple objects and to impose topological conditions and neighborhood relationships on the objects that are sought. Finding specific compartments that subdivide or parcellate objects according to known anatomy or geometry is an example of this task. This talk presents a level set segmentation algorithm for multiple objects or compartments. In contrast to other techniques, the method can handle large numbers of objects and relationships without a large additional computational burden. Background on level set segmentation and digitial topology will be briefly provided and results on both illustrative examples and thalamus and whole brain parcellation will be shown.
