I want to crop each root individually out.
I initially thought of heavy dilation followed by erosion and contour detection of the blob, but since the roots are thin, it does not work well.
I also thresholded the image using HSV followed by some median blurring. But it did not reduce much noise. Further blurring only leads to losing the root features.
Can anyone suggest me a better approach to tackle this problem? Will any Machine Learning based approach work better? Thanks
