The sequence below seems like a good start.
is going on in more details:

trace = Import["http://www.d-a-v-e.org/images/Trace.jpg";]

b = ColorNegate@Binarize[trace];
b2 = SelectComponents[b, "Area", -1];
b3 = FillingTransform@b2;
result = ColorNegate@Image[WatershedComponents[dt], "Bit"];
HighlightImage[trace, result]
