As the computer technology advances, data acquisition, processing and visualization techniques have a tremendous impact on medical imaging. On the other hand, however, the interpretation of medical images is still almost performed by radiologists nowadays. Developments in artificial intelligence and image processing show that computer-aided diagnosis emerges with increasingly high potential. In this paper, we develop an intelligent approach to perform image segmentation and thus to discover… CONTINUE READING
