3D-Color-Structure-Code — A Hierarchical Region Growing Method for Segmentation of 3D-Images
The Color Structure Code (CSC) [RE98] is a very efficient segmentation method for color images. It operates with a hierarchical region growing method. Originally, the CSC was constructed to work on two dimensional images. The generalization of the CSC for 3d images, is not a trivial task. Some important modifications of the original (2d) algorithm have to be done as the under lying 2-dimensional hierarchical hexagon topology cannot be generalized in all aspects to three dimensions.
