To improve the robustness of segmentation methods, more and more methods use prior knowledge. [...] Key Method A specific external energy which attracts the deformable model to locally detected surfaces, reduces the danger that the mesh is trapped by false object boundaries. Examples are shown, and furthermore a validation study for the segmentation of vertebrae in CT images is presented. With the exception of a few problematic areas, the algorithm leads reliably to a very good overall segmentation.Expand
