Image segmentation is, in general, an ill-posed problem and additional constraints need to be imposed in order to achieve the desired result. Particularly in the field of medical image segmentation, a significant amount of prior knowledge is available that can be used to constrain the solution space of the segmentation problem. However, most of this prior(More)
There is growing evidence that calcified arterial deposits play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease. This paper investigates the challenging problem of unsupervised calcified lesion classification. We propose an algorithm, US-CALC (UnSupervised Calcified Arterial Lesion Classification), that discriminates arterial lesions from(More)
The diaphragm is a thin double-domed muscle that separates the thoracic and abdominal cavities. An accurate delineation of the diaphragm surface will be useful in providing a good region of interest for segmentation problems pertaining to the thoracic and abdominal cavities. In this paper, we present a fully automatic 3D graph-based method for the(More)
