Streszczenie:
In the paper a new algorithm for the automatic segmentation of characteristic areas of the human head in a thermovision image is presented. The analysed regions include: forehead, area of sinuses and back of the neck. The covered set of approaches, which are mainly algorithms employing morphological operations, neural networks and methods based on human head proportions, can provide satisfying completely results for a doctor's practice in a fully automatic way.
