Contour extraction of fetus' head from echocardiogram using SNAKES

Abstract

This paper deals with contour extraction of fetus' head from echocardiogram and its application to diagnosis in obstetrics. Active contour model "SNAKES" is modified and used for contour extraction. After contour extraction we automatically obtained the biparietal diameter (BPD) and the occipitofrontal diameter (OFD) from the contour.
