Automatic Volumetric Liver Segmentation from MRI Data

Haidi Ibrahim, Maria Petrou, Kevin Wells, Simon Doran, and Øystein Olsen
Abstract—In this paper, we automate a segmentation technique known as intelligent scissors to segment the liver from volumetric MRI data. With this method, the user only needs to select an initial slice, and the method is executed automatically. From the initial slice, the contour propagates inside the volume and segments the liver in every slice using a dynamic programming algorithm.

Index Terms—Automatic segmentation, intelligent scissors, liver segmentation, MRI liver dataset.
