Among all abnormal growths inside the skull, the percentage of tumors in sellar region is approximately 10-15%, and the pituitary adenoma is the most common sellar lesion. A time-consuming process that can be shortened by using adequate algorithms is the manual segmentation of pituitary adenomas. In this contribution, two methods for pituitary adenoma segmentation in the human brain are presented and compared using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) patient data from the clinical routine: Method… CONTINUE READING
