dc.description.abstractA novel vessel context-based voting is proposed for automatic liver vasculature segmentation in CT images. It is able to conduct full vessel segmentation and recognition of multiple vasculatures effectively. The vessel context describes context information of a voxel related to vessel properties, such as intensity, saliency, direction, and connectivity. Voxels are grouped to liver vasculatures hierarchically based on vessel context. They are first grouped locally into vessel branches with the advantage of a vessel junction measurement and then grouped globally into vasculatures, which is implemented using a multiple feature point voting mechanism. The proposed method has been evaluated on ten clinical CT datasets. Segmentation of third-order vessel trees from CT images (0.76×0.76 2.0 mm) of the portal venous phase takes less than 3 min on a PC with 2.0 GHz dual core processor and the average segmentation accuracy is up to 98. © 2011 IEEE.
