Recent work on liver and lesion segmentation employs graph cut and level set techniques [16,15,17], sigmoid edge modeling [5] or mani-fold and machine learning [11,6]. It is a key because inaccurately segmented text lines will lead to OCR failure. It had been obsolete for 30+ years. From the input image, first an otsu thresholding technique is used to get a binary mask, which is then converted to a dense level-set function. We also assume that given a text line, each CC belongs to only one word, i. The OD segmentation steps start by converting the image to a grayscale image and then implementing the image preprocessing (image enhancement).
