Contrast Enhancement for Liver Tumor Identification
In CT images, tumors located in a liver are generally identified by intensity difference between tumor and liver. The intensity of the tumor can be lower and or higher than that of the liver. However, the main problem of liver tumor detection from is related [...]

A semi-automated method for liver tumor segmentation based on 2D region growing with
Liver tumour segmentation from computed tomography (CT) scans is a challenging task. A semi-automatic method based on 2D region growing with knowledge-based constraints is proposed to segment lesions from constituent 2D slices obtained from 3D CT images. [...]

Cognition Network Technology for a Fully Automated 3D Segmentation of Liver Tumors
The Definiens Cognition Network Technology is applied to detect automatically tumors in a human liver. On the basis of a test data set containing ten tumors we show first quantitative results which are compared to manual segmentations provided by medical [...]

An iterative Bayesian approach for liver analysis: tumors validation study
We present a new method for the simultaneous, nearly automatic segmentation of liver contours, vessels, and tumors from abdominal CTA scans. The method repeatedly applies multi-resolution, multi-class smoothed Bayesian classification followed by [...]

Semi-automatic Segmentation of 3D Liver Tumors from CT Scans Using Voxel Classification and Propagational Learning
A semi-automatic scheme was developed for the segmentation of 3D liver tumors from computed tomography (CT) images. First a support vector machine (SVM) classifier was trained to extract tumor region from one single 2D slice in the intermediate part of a [...]

Semi-automatic Segmentation of Liver Tumors from CT Scans Using Bayesian Rule-based 3D Region Growing
Automatic segmentation of liver tumorous regions often fails due to high noise and large variance of tumors. In this work, a semi-automatic algorithm is proposed to segment liver tumors from computed tomography (CT) images. To cope with the variance of [...]

Segmentation of Liver Metastases Using a Level Set Method with Spiral-Scanning Technique and Supervised Fuzzy Pixel Classification
In this paper a specific method is presented to facilitate the semi-automatic segmentation of liver metastases in CT images. Accurate and reliable segmentation of tumors is e.g. essential for the follow-up of cancer treatment. The core of the algorithm is a [...]

Segmentation of Liver Metastases in CT Scans by Adaptive Thresholding and Morphological Processing
This article presents an algorithm for the segmentation of liver metastases in CT scans. It is a hybrid method that combines adaptive thresholding based on a gray value analysis of the ROI with model-based morphological processing. We show the results of the [...]

An entropy based multi-thresholding method for semi-automatic segmentation of liver tumors
Liver cancer is the fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. A precise analysis of the lesions would help in the staging of the tumor and in the evaluation of the possible applicable therapies. In [...]

Validation of Liver Tumor Segmentation in CT Scans by Relating Manual and Algorithmic Performance - A Preliminary Study
No opinion
The development of segmentation algorithms for liver tumors in CT scans has found growing attention in recent years. The validation of these methods, however, is often treated as a subordinate task. In this article, we review existing approaches and present [...]

Ensemble segmentation using AdaBoost with application to liver lesion extraction from a CT volume
This paper describes an ensemble segmentation trained by the AdaBoost algorithm, which finds a sequence of weak hypotheses, each of which is appropriate for the distribution on training example, and combines the weak hypotheses by a weighted majority vote. In [...]
