Hum et al. and heavy computing consumption while computing the partial differential equation. Active contour model (Pietka et al. 2001) has been used in segmenting the bone; the methods (Cao et al. 2000) c-means clustering algorithm, Gibbs random fields, and estimation of the intensity function have been proposed by Pietka et al. They also proposed Gao et al. (2010) segmentation of hand bone during preprocessing using the analysis on histogram. By inspecting the peak of the histogram, the authors identify the soft tissue region and the background.

As the significant initial step of the system, the output accuracy and practicality of segmentation are critical since the quality of the computerized BAA system output depends heavily on it (Sotoca et al. 2003). Substantial efforts have been devoted to research on the preprocessing of hand skeletal bone from background and soft tissue region. Most of the works involve the application of threshold setting which is considered ineffective in the hand bone segmentation due to the fact that the soft tissue region contains pixel intensity that similar to spongy bone of the hand skeletal bone (Smyth et al.

Attributable to the limitations of using simple statistics, various more sophisticated types of thresholding methods based on different techniques in determining the threshold value are proposed: one of the methods is the threshold value selection based on histogram: instead of choosing the mean or median of the image as the threshold value to separate the object and the background, the histogrambased thresholding method determines the threshold value based on the histogram shape assuming that there are distinct range for object and background themselves.
