Ovarian cysts are a common type of ovarian mass. The morphology of cysts, as it appears in ultrasound images, is currently used for classification of ovarian pathologies. However, this classification process is based on human interpretation of the sonographic image. In this article, a semiautomatic algorithm for the quantification of ovarian cysts is presented. This algorithm categorizes the structures within a cyst and extracts their quantitative geometric properties (width, characteristic… CONTINUE READING
