Objectives: Cardiotocography (CTG) is a useful tool for monitoring of the fetal heart rate (FHR) and uterine contractions (UC) during the intrauterine life. Generally, CTG is provided on a printed paper which is hard to save for future evaluations. So, digitization of CTG signals is in demand for future evaluations. A straightforward approach for digitization of the CTG signals is to apply image processing on the scanned CTG printed papers.
