Received Revised Accepted In this paper we present a new algorithm to track an organ in a sequence of medical images in order to achieve a 3D reconstruction. The automatic method that we propose allows the tracking of the external contour of the anatomical organ in all the sequence from one contour initialized by the user on the first image. The required operations for our tracking method are the region-based active contours segmentation. The objects localization with dynamic prediction of
