Automatic segmentation of brain structures for radiation therapy planning
Medical Imaging 2003: Image Processing
Delineation of structures to irradiate (the tumors) as well as structures to be spared (e.g., optic nerve, brainstem, or eyes) is required for advanced radiotherapy techniques. Due to a lack of time and the number of patients to be treated these cannot always be segmented accurately which may lead to suboptimal plans. A possible solution is to develop methods to identify these structures automatically. This study tests the hypothesis that a fully automatic, atlas-based segmentation method candoi:10.1117/12.480392 dblp:conf/miip/DHaeseDLdMCDNMD03 fatcat:afe5rg5a7baebntnmdsgobzpfi
