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)
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)
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)
