© 2019 Elsevier GmbH Level set methods are widely used in image segmentation and shape analysis. However, most of the current research focuses on fast computational algorithms, initial value selection, and practical applications in various areas. To the best of our knowledge, no research has been conducted on segmentation with level set models where the segmentation contours have to pass through some prior landmark points. In this paper, we propose a new variational model for image segmentation based on the classical Chan-Vese model for this new problem. The new model incorporates prior landmarks information as constraints in a formulated optimization problem. Then, we investigate the theoretical solvability of the new model and design a new algorithm based on the Split Bregman algorithm for numerical implementation. Finally, we conduct some segmentation experiments on gray images and compare with the original Chan-Vese model. The obtained results show many advantages of the proposed model with broad applications. Additionally, we give some critical analysis of the proposed algorithm.
