Inspired by its high performance in image -based medical analysis, this poster paper explores the use of advanced segmentation techniques for industrial Microwave Tomography (MWT). Our context is the visual analysis of moisture levels in porous foams undergoing microwave drying. We propose an automatic segmentation technique MWT Segmentation based on K-means (MWTS-KM) and demonstrate its efficiency and accuracy for industrial use. MWTS-KM consists of three stages: image augmentation, greyscale conversion, and K-means implementation. To estimate the performance of this technique, we empirically benchmark its efficiency and accuracy against two well-established alternatives: Otsu and K-means. To elicit performance data, three metrics (Jaccard index, Dice coefficient and false positive) are used. Based on our experiments, our results indicate that MWTS-KM outperforms the well-established Otsu and K-means.
