Accurate and Fast 3D Colon Segmentation in CT Colonography
This paper introduces an adaptive level set method for 3D segmentation of colon tissue in CT colonography filled with air and opacified fluid. First, most of the opacified liquid is removed by a threshold value. The closed contours are propagated toward the desired 3D region boundaries through the iterative evolution of the adaptive level sets function. The proposed method has been tested on 22 real CT colonography datasets with various pathologies, and the segmentation accuracy has achieved 98.40%.
