# Chapter 9 Image Analysis II: Segmentation Ananlysis

### What we have in store

Segmentation analysis is one of the most important sub-fields under image analysis. It is the starting point of most detection algorithms for images as diverse as an image of a cell, an MRI scan of a brain or an ariel photograph from a military drone. In this lesson, we will use the tools from skimage to learn the basics of segmentation analysis. We will round up by applying these tools to tracking a particle.
