Statistical shape models for segmentation and structural analysis
Biomedical imaging of large patient populations, both cross-sectionally and longitudinally, is becoming a standard technique for noninvasive, in-vivo studies of the pathophysiology of diseases and for monitoring drug treatment. In radiation oncology, imaging and extraction of anatomical organ geometry is a routine procedure for therapy planning an monitoring, and similar procedures are vital for surgical planning and image-guided therapy. Bottlenecks of today's studies, often processed by labor-intensive manual region drawing, are the lack of efficient, reliable tools for threedimensional organ segmentation and for advanced morphologic characterization. This paper discusses current research and development focused towards building of statistical shape models, used for automatic model-based segmentation and for shape analysis and discrimination. We build statistical shape models which describe the geometric variability and image intensity characteristics of anatomical structures. ...
