BACKGROUND Surgery of radiation-induced cataracts in children with retinoblastoma (RB) is a challenge as early intervention is weighted against the need to delay surgery until complete tumour control is obtained. This study analyses the safety and functional results of such surgery. METHODS In a retrospective, non-comparative, consecutive case series, we(More)
Segmenting ultrasound images is a challenging problem where standard unsupervised segmentation methods such as the well-known Chan-Vese method fail. We propose in this paper an efficient segmentation method for this class of images. Our proposed algorithm is based on a semi-supervised approach (user labels) and the use of image patches as data features. We(More)
For radiotherapy treatment planning of retinoblastoma in childhood, Computed Tomography (CT) represents the standard method for tumor volume delineation, despite some inherent limitations. CT scan is very useful in providing information on physical density for dose calculation and morphological volumetric information but presents a low sensitivity in(More)
PURPOSE Proper delineation of ocular anatomy in 3-dimensional (3D) imaging is a big challenge, particularly when developing treatment plans for ocular diseases. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is presently used in clinical practice for diagnosis confirmation and treatment planning for treatment of retinoblastoma in infants, where it serves as a source of(More)
