Accurate segmentation of the prostate in computed tomography (CT) images is important in image-guided radiotherapy; however, difficulties remain associated with this task. In this study, an automatic framework is designed for prostate segmentation in CT images. We propose a novel image feature extraction method, namely, variant scale patch, which can provide rich image information in a low dimensional feature space. We assume that the samples from different classes lie on different nonlinear… CONTINUE READING
