Microstructures in the liver are primarily composed of hepatocytes, hepatic blood, and biliary vessels. Because each hepatocyte comes in contact with both vessels, these vessels form three-dimensional (3D) periodic network patterns. Confocal microscope images are useful for observing 3D structures; however, it is necessary to explicitly describe the vessel structures using 3D images of sinusoidal endothelial cells. For this purpose, we propose a new approach for image segmentation based on thedoi:10.4236/jbm.2018.610004 fatcat:gvvixpzybjc57pt6eu33u2ivye
