Hybrid Segmentation of Anatomical Data

Imielinska, Celina Z.; Metaxes, Dimitris; Udupa, Jayaram; Jin, Yinpeng; Chen, Ting

We propose new hybrid methods for automated segmentation of radiological patient data and the Visible Human data. In this paper, we integrate boundary-based and region-based segmentation methods which amplifies the strength but reduces the weakness of both approaches. The novelty comes from combining a boundary-based method, the deformable model-based segmentation with region-based segmentation methods, the fuzzy connectedness and Voronoi Diagram-based segmentation, to develop hybrid methods that yield high precision, accuracy and efficiency. This work is a part of a NLM funded effort to provide a fully implemented and tested Visible Human Project Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (Insight).
