We propose a pattern classification based approach for simultaneous three-dimensional (3-D) object modeling and segmentation in image volumes. The 3-D objects are described as a set of overlapping ellipsoids. The segmentation relies on the geometrical model and graylevel statistics. The characteristic parameters of the ellipsoids and of the graylevel statistics are embedded in a radial basis function (RBF) network and they are found by means of unsupervised training. A new robust training algorithm for RBF networks based on α-trimmed mean statistics is employed in this study. The extension of the Hough transform algorithm in the 3-D space by employing a spherical coordinate system is used for ellipsoidal center estimation. We study the performance of the proposed algorithm and we present results when segmenting a stack of microscopy images
