A robust automated segmentation of abdominal organs can be crucial for computer aided diagnosis and laparoscopic surgery assistance. Many existing methods are specialised to the segmentation of individual organs or struggle to deal with the variability of the shape and position of abdominal organs. We present a general, fully-automated method for multi-organ segmentation of abdominal CT scans. The method is based on a hierarchical atlas registration and weighting scheme that generates target… CONTINUE READING
