The incident rate of the Gastrointestinal-Disease (GD) in humans is gradually rising due to a variety of reasons and the Endoscopic/Colonoscopic-Image (EI/CI) supported evaluation of the GD is an approved practice. Extraction and evaluation of the suspicious section of the EI/CI is essential to diagnose the disease and its severity. The proposed research aims to implement a joint thresholding and segmentation framework to extract the Gastric-Polyp (GP) with better accuracy. The proposed GP detection system consist; (i) Enhancement of GP region using Aquila-Optimization-Algorithm supported tri-level thresholding with entropy (Fuzzy/Shannon/Kapur) and between-class-variance (Otsu) technique, (ii) Automated (Watershed/Markov-Random-Field) and semi-automated (Chan-Vese/Level-Set/Active-Contour) segmentation of GP fragment, and (iii) Performance evaluation and validation of the proposed scheme. The experimental investigation was performed using four benchmark EI dataset (CVC-ClinicDB, ETIS-Larib, EndoCV2020 and Kvasir). The similarity measures, such as Jaccard, Dice, accuracy, precision, sensitivity and specificity are computed to confirm the clinical significance of the proposed work. The outcome of this research confirms that the fuzzy-entropy thresholding combined with Chan-Vese helps to achieve a better similarity measures compared to the alternative schemes considered in this research.
