Bladder segmentation in MRI images using active region growing model.

Résumé

Prostate segmentation in MRI may be difficult at the interface with the bladder where the contrast is poor. Coupled-models that segment simultaneously both organs with non-overlapping constraints offer a good solution. As a pre-segmentation of the structures of interest is required, we propose in this paper a fast deformable model to segment the bladder. The combination of inflation and internal forces, locally adapted according to the gray levels, allow to deform the mesh toward the boundaries while overcoming the leakage issues that can occur at weak edges. The algorithm, evaluated on 33 MRI volumes from 5 different devices, has shown good performance providing a smooth and accurate surface.
