Example text

In a recent publication (Lefèvre, 2007) Lefèvre has introduced a new formulation for the marker introduction based on a feature calculation and pixel classification. Their method has s performed well, segmenting color images of size 481×321 pixels in about 15 seconds, with significant improvement in the quality of obtained segmentation comparing to the traditional methods. The tests however are rather poor in their nature, as they have been performed with images not related to medicine, using a portable computer.

When no point could be moved to a more optimal position in its nearest neighborhood the algorithm was stopped. As it can be seen using a greedy algorithm to solve the optimum finding problem introduces the risk of stopping at a local minimum instead of the global one. This issue was further examined in (Ibáñez, Barreira, Santos, & Penedo, 2006) by Ibáñez and Barreira and new optimization techniques were introduced, namely a genetic algorithm. Authors have used a standard approach for genetic algorithms presented in (Goldberg, 1989), introducing their own solutions for crossover, mutation, spread and group mutation operators.
