Automated slice-matching technique for plain images and contrast-enhanced images of liver
M2 Eiichirou Okumura
In terms of CT examination for the liver, to match plain images with contrast-enhanced (CE) images for comparative interpretation, we are developing an automated slice registration technique for the liver using template matching.
After taking sliced images of the liver from each
patient, we compared their shapes with
a series of registered plain and CE image templates. compared the
boundary of the liver (liver-shape) slices with the templates.
