We propose a novel segmentation algorithm that can segment confocal micrographs of horizontal cells. A unique aspect of the algorithm is that it produces a probabilistic mask, or pmask, which gives for each pixel the probability that the pixel belongs to the cell. The pmask enables analysis modules to compute confidence values for their results.
