Medical image segmentation tasks are important to visualize features of interests such as lesions with boundary and volume information. Similar information is required in the computerized quantitative analysis and classification for diagnostic evaluation and characterization. This chapter presents some of the most effective and commonly used edge and region segmentation methods. Statistical quantitative features from gray level distribution, segmented regions, and texture in the image are also presented.
