Summary of "Multi-organ segmentation based on spatially-divided probabilistic atlas from 3D abdominal CT images."

This paper presents an automated multi-organ segmentation method for 3D abdominal CT images based on a spatially-divided probabilistic atlases. Most previous abdominal organ segmentation methods are ineffective to deal with the large differences among patients in organ shape and position in local areas. In this paper, we propose an automated multi-organ segmentation method based on a spatially-divided probabilistic atlas, and solve this problem by introducing a scale hierarchical probabilistic atlas. The algorithm consists of image-space division and a multi-scale weighting scheme. The generated spatial-divided probabilistic atlas efficiently reduces the inter-subject variance in organ shape and position either in global or local regions. Our proposed method was evaluated using 100 abdominal CT volumes with manually traced ground truth data. Experimental results showed that it can segment the liver, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys with Dice similarity indices of 95.1%, 91.4%, 69.1%, and 90.1%, respectively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The period from onset of one menstrual bleeding (MENSTRUATION) to the next in an ovulating woman or female primate. The menstrual cycle is regulated by endocrine interactions of the HYPOTHALAMUS; the PITUITARY GLAND; the ovaries; and the genital tract. The menstrual cycle is divided by OVULATION into two phases. Based on the endocrine status of the OVARY, there is a FOLLICULAR PHASE and a LUTEAL PHASE. Based on the response in the ENDOMETRIUM, the menstrual cycle is divided into a proliferative and a secretory phase.

Cell surface proteins that bind acetylcholine with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Cholinergic receptors are divided into two major classes, muscarinic and nicotinic, based originally on their affinity for nicotine and muscarine. Each group is further subdivided based on pharmacology, location, mode of action, and/or molecular biology.
