This paper proposes a diffusion scheme for multi-spectral images which incorporates both spatial derivatives and feature-space classification. A variety of conductance terms are suggested that use the posterior probability maps and their spatial derivatives to create resistive boundaries that reflect objectness rather than intensity differences alone. A theoretical test case is discussed as well as simulated and real magnetic resonance dual echo images. We compare the method for both supervised and unsupervised classification.
