This paper analyzes the problem of shape modeling using the principle of active geometric deformable models. While the basic modeling technique already exists in the literature, we highlight many of its drawbacks and discuss their source and steps to overcome them. We propose a new stopping criterion to address the stopping problem. We also propose to apply a level set algorithm to implement the active geometric deformable models, thereby handling topology changes automatically. To alleviate the numerical problems associated with the implementation of the level set algorithm, we propose a new adaptive multigrid narrow band algorithm. All the proposed new changes have been illustrated with experiments with synthetic images and medical images
