Segmentation is widely used for determining tumor and other lesions and classifying tissues for various analysis purposes in medical images. However, being an illposed problem, there is no single segmentation method which can perform successfully for all kind of data. In this study, a novel total variation (TV) based skull segmentation method is proposed. Skull segmentation performance of the proposed method is shown using computed tomography (CT) images.
