FTH is a fuzzy thresholding method for image segmentation. The method is based on relating each pixel in the image to the different regions via a membership function, rather than through hard decisions. The membership function of each of the regions is derived from a fuzzy c-means centroid search. As a consequence, each pixel will belong to different regions with a different level of membership. This feature is exploited through spatial processing to make the thresholding robust to noisy environments.
