Region analysis of abdominal CT scans using image partition forests.
The segmentation of medical scans (CT, MRI, etc.) and the subsequent identification of key features therein, such as organs and tumours, is an important precursor to many medical imaging applications. It is a difficult problem, not least because of the extent to which the shapes of organs can vary from one image to the next. One interesting approach is to start by partitioning the image into a region hierarchy, in which each node represents a contiguous region of the image. This is a well-kno...Expand abstract
