The level set segmentation process has two major stages, initialization and level set surface deformation, as shown in Fig. 8.2. Each stage is equally important for generating a correct segmentation. Within our framework a variety of core operations are available in each stage. A user must "mix-and-match" these operations in order to produce the desired result . Later sections describe specialized operations for solving specific segmentation problems that build upon and extend the framework.
