This process is usually done manually with a mouse, and for a typical data set of some 40 slices it can be a time-consuming and tedious process. We report on a system for interactive region and volume growing that assists the clinical user in outlining relevant volumes. The algorithm detects regions of interest grown from a seed… CONTINUE READING
