Method: A hybrid generative-discriminative framework is proposed. It first uses a generative model to describe non-lesion components and then identifies all candidate FLLs within a 3D liver volume by eliminating non-lesion components. It subsequently uses a discriminative approach to suppress false positives with the advantage of tumoroid, a novel measurement combining three shape features spherical symmetry, compactness and size. Results: This method was tested on 71 abdominal CT datasets (5,854 slices from 61 patients, with 261 FLLs covering six pathological types) and evaluated using the free-response receiver operating characteristic (FROC) curves. Overall, it achieved a true positive rate of 90 % with one false positive per liver. It degenerated gently with the decrease in lesion sizes to 30 ml. It achieved a true-positive rate of 36 % when tested on the lesions less than 4 ml. The average computing time of the lesion detection is 4 min and 28 s per CT volume on a PC with 2.67 GHz CPU and 4.0 GB RAM. Conclusions: The proposed method is comparable to the radiologists' visual investigation in terms of efficiency. The tool has great potential to reduce radiologists' burden in going through thousands of images routinely. © 2013 CARS.||Source Title:||International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/126946||ISSN:||18616410||DOI:||10.1007/s11548-013-0832-8|
