Accurate tumour volume measurement from MR images requires some form of objective image segmentation, and therefore a certain degree of automation. Manual methods of separating data according to the various tissue types which they are thought to represent are inherently prone to operator subjectivity and can be very time consuming. A segmentation procedure based on morphological edge detection and region growing has been implemented and tested on a phantom of known adjustable volume… CONTINUE READING
