  • AbstractObjective Validation of medical image segmentation algorithms is an open question, considering variance of individual pathologies and the related clinical requirements for accuracy. [...] Key Method Although it is oriented to the accuracy measurement it is also closely related to the robustness of a method. Results Features of the metrics are analyzed alongside their medical impact. A set of numerical simulations is performed in order to compare the proposed metric with standardly used discrepancy…Expand Abstract
