In this paper, a novel 3D vector field convolution (VFC)-based B-spline deformation model is proposed for accurate and robust cartilage segmentation. Firstly, the anisotropic diffusion method is utilized for noise reduction, and the Sinc interpolation method is employed for resampling. Then, to extract the rough cartilage, features derived from
