The generic fuzzy rule-based image segmentation algorithm (GFRIS) does not produce good results for images containing non-homogeneous regions, as it does not directly consider texture. In this paper a new algorithm called fuzzy rules for image segmentation incorporating texture features (FRIST) is proposed, which includes two additional membership functions to those already defined in GFRIS. FRIST incorporates the fractal dimension and contrast features of a texture by considering image domain specific information. Quantitative evaluation of the performance of FRIST is discussed and contrasted with GFRIS using one of the standard segmentation evaluation methods. Overall, FRIST exhibits considerable improvement in the results obtained compared with the GFRIS approach for many different image types.
