Fast Continuous Min-Cut segmentation

We present a semi-supervised segmentation framework for B-mode ultrasound imaging. It is applicable to any kind of target and imaging settings. Our methodology uses a graph of image patches to represent the ultrasound image and user-assisted initialization with labels, which acts as soft priors. The segmentation problem is formulated as a continuous minimum cut problem and solved with an efficient optimisation algorithm.
