Abstract

Recently, organ illness discovery in which medical image analysis can be used has been researched actively. Though such a research proceeds through the extraction of pulmonary tumors, there is little research on the extraction of liver tumors. This is because there is no difference in concentrated value in the liver CT image of a healthy part and parts with the tumor. In this paper, the extraction method of such liver tumors is proposed. Furthermore, in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, we show a simulation example, using real CT image data.
