RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to identify the optimal parameter configuration of a new algorithm for fully automatic segmentation of hepatic vessels, evaluating its accuracy in view of its use in a computer system for three-dimensional (3D) planning of liver surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS A phantom reproduction of a human liver with vessels up to the fourth subsegment order, corresponding to a minimum diameter of 0.2 mm, was realized through stereolithography, exploiting… CONTINUE READING
