Specifying the boundary of tissues or an organ is one of the most frequently required tasks for a radiologist. It is a first step for further processing, such as comparing two serial images in time, volume measurements. In the present work, we use genetic algorithms (GA) and where necessary apply a ldquodynamic genetic algorithmrdquo (dGA) procedure, which (we believe) is a unique application, to assess different values for finding an optimal set of parameters that characterize the level set… CONTINUE READING
