Nowadays, multi-source image acquisition attracts an increasing interest in many fields, such as multi-modal medical image segmentation. Such acquisition aims at considering complementary information to perform image segmentation, since the same scene has been observed by various types of images. However, strong dependence often exists between multi-source images. This dependence should be taken into account when we try to extract joint information for precisely making a decision. In order to… 
Segmentation of multicorrelated images with copula models and conditionally random fields
A method for segmenting multisource images that are statistically correlated and compared with different state-of-the-art methods, which includes supervised (convolutional neural networks) and unsupervised (hierarchical MRF).
3D Medical Multi-modal Segmentation Network Guided by Multi-source Correlation Constraint
This paper proposes a multimodality segmentation network with a correlation constraint that includes N model-independent encoding paths with N image sources, a correlation constrain block, a feature fusion block, and a decoding path that can capture modality-specific features from the N modalities.
Joint Tumor Segmentation in PET-CT Images Using Co-Clustering and Fusion Based on Belief Functions
A co-clustering algorithm is proposed to concurrently segment 3D tumors in PET-CT images, considering that the two complementary imaging modalities can combine functional and anatomical information to improve segmentation performance.
Brain tumor segmentation with missing modalities via latent multi-source correlation representation
A novel correlation representation block is proposed to specially discover the latent multi-source correlation between multi modalities and it outperforms the current state-of-the-art method and produces robust results when one or more modalities are missing.
