Accurate segmentation for right ventricles based on affinity propagation clustering and multi-Atlas selection

Abstract

Due to the unique characteristics of right ventricle, such as volatile, thin wall, unobvious boundary, multi-Atlas algorithm is appropriate for its segmentation. However, most of the existing Atlas select methods are based on choosing Atlas after registering, while the registering is time consuming and reduce the segmentation performance. For this reasons… (More)
