Image segmentation plays a major role in medical imaging. Especially in radiology, the detection and development of tumors and other diseases can be supported by image segmentation applications. Tools that provide image segmentation and calculation of segmentation scores are not available at any time for every device due to the size and scope of functionalities they offer. These tools need huge periodic updates and do not properly work on old or weak systems. However, medical use-cases often… Expand

Multimodal Learning for Clinical Decision Support and Clinical Image-Based Procedures: 10th International Workshop, ML-CDS 2020, and 9th International Workshop, CLIP 2020, Held in Conjunction with MICCAI 2020, Lima, Peru, October 4–8, 2020, Proceedings
A user study to investigate which visualization techniques helped non-expert users effectively navigate a surgical tool to screw targets found that 3D visualizations on their own are significantly less accurate and efficient and that the orientation of the virtual surgical scene must match the user’s perspective of the physical scene to prevent unnecessary time mentally reconciling the two domains.

Evaluation of internal carotid artery segmentation by InsightSNAP
The conclusion from this training set was that the initial thresholding (assigning probabilities to the intensities of image pixels) in the image pre-processing step was most important to obtaining an acceptable segmentation, but no consistent trends emerged in how this threshold should be chosen.
