Abstract: Liver and liver tumor segmentations are very important for a contemporary planning system of liver surgery. However, both liver and liver tumor segmentations are a grand challenge in clinics. In this paper, we proposed an integrated paradigm with fuzzy c-means (FCM) and level set method for computerized liver tumor segmentation. An innovation in this paper is to interface the initial segmentations from FCM and the fine delineation with level set method by morphological operations. The results in real medical images confirm the effectiveness of such integrated paradigm for liver tumor segmentation.
