It is often a nontrivial task to produce optimal segmentation results using existing segmentation software, especially when the user's data and manual segmentation protocol are different from those used by the software developers. We present an open source wrapper algorithm that can automatically improve segmentation accuracy of any existing segmentation software on the user's data using training data provided by the user.
