Abstract : In this paper, we propose an original approach for the binarization of gray level images. A multi-scale algorithm based on a statistical test of homogeneity decides if a region belongs to the background or not. At each iteration the image is smoothed with a nonlinear filter to remove the noise. Stable regions in scale space are used as a model to automatically find a threshold from the intensity histogram.
