Edge Detection (Millimeter wave data)

I have two images

Right calf: https://imgur.com/tYy992e

This is captured from a millimeter wave scanner. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millimeter_wave_scanner

You can see a "glowing edge" around the shape representing the pant leg. I need help with a convert command that will identify the outline leg image. If the edge detection highlights some horizontal features within the "leg" that is fine, but I want it to blur away the pant outline.

The pant leg represents external clothing, I want to get the edge of the actual leg.

The image is grayscale with limited resolution, what you see is what you get. The black in the image appears to be noise that could ideally be softened (replace all black with a color very close to white, but a white color unique to the image)
