A dynamic graph-cuts method with integrated multiple feature maps for segmenting kidneys in ultrasound images

11 Jun 2017Qiang ZhengSteven WarnerGregory TasianYong Fan

Purpose: To improve kidney segmentation in clinical ultrasound (US) images, we develop a new graph cuts based method to segment kidney US images by integrating original image intensity information and texture feature maps extracted using Gabor filters. Methods: To handle large appearance variation within kidney images and improve computational efficiency, we build a graph of image pixels close to kidney boundary instead of building a graph of the whole image...
