3D Prostate Segmentation in Ultrasound Images Based on Tapered and Deformed Ellipsoids

Abstract

Prostate segmentation from trans-rectal transverse B-mode ultrasound images is required for radiation treatment of prostate cancer. Manual segmentation is a time-consuming task, the results of which are dependent on image quality and physicians' experience. This paper introduces a semi-automatic 3D method based on super-ellipsoidal shapes. It produces a 3D… (More)
