The segmentation of soft tissues in medical images is a challenging problem due to the weak boundary, large deformation and serious mutual influence. We present a novel method incorporating both the shape and appearance information in a 3-D graph-theoretic framework to overcome those difficulties for simultaneous segmentation of prostate and bladder. An arc-weighted graph is constructed corresponding to the initial mesh. Both the boundary and region information is incorporated into the graph… CONTINUE READING
