[BioC] imageHTS Segmentation Functions

I'm interested in using imageHTS and associated libraries for some
screening data. My only hesitation at the moment is the amount of work /
specialist image processing knowledge (of which I have ~0) involved in
writing cell segmentation and feature extraction routines. The only example
I can find is the built in segmentATH which the ImageHTS vignette describes
as 'specifically designed to segment cells stained for DNA and cytoskeletal
proteins' (not appropriate for my data) and the sections at the end of the
EBImage vignette - which look suspiciously simple compared to segmentATH().
Before I dive into writing my own segmentation routine I just wanted to
check that I'm right in thinking there isn't another library of pre-made
routines or any other good resources for doing this in R/Bioconductor?
