We investigated Generalized Gradient Vector Flow Active Contours as a suitable boundary mapping technique for Chromosome spread images which have variability in shape and size, expecting to yield a robust segmentation scheme that can be used for segmentation of similar class of images based on optimal set of parameter values. It is found experimentally that a unique set of parameter values is required for boundary mapping each chromosome image. Characterization studies have established that each parameter has an optimal range of values within which good boundary mapping results can be obtained in similar class of images. Statistical testing validates the experimental results.
