Automatic Liver Segmentation Technique

By David G. Heath, Brian S. Kuszyk, Elliot K. Fishman and For Three-dimensional Visualization Ofct Data

Abstract

PURPOSE: To develop a system for automatic segmentation of the liver from computed tomographic (CT) scans of the abdomen for threedimensional volume-rendering displays. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An automated liver segmentation system was developed, which combined domain knowledge with analysis of a global histogram, morphologic operators, and the parametrically deformable contour model. Boundaries of the thresholded liver volume were modified section-by-section by exploitin
