Some of the practical applications of image segmentation are:
- Medical imaging
- Locate tumors and other pathologies
- Measure tissue volumes
- Computer-guided surgery
- Treatment planning
- Study of anatomical structure
- Locate objects in satellite images (roads, forests, etc.)
- Face recognition
- Iris recognition
- Fingerprint recognition
- Traffic control systems
- Brake light detection
- Machine vision
- Agricultural imaging – crop disease detection
Several general-purpose algorithms and techniques have been developed for image segmentation. Since there is no general solution to the image segmentation problem, these techniques often have to be combined with domain knowledge in order to effectively solve an image segmentation problem for a problem domain.
