Three-dimensional semiautomatic liver segmentation method for non-contrast computed tomography

What is it about?

We sought to evaluate a new regional segmentation method for use with three-dimensional (3D) non-contrast abdominal CT images and to report the preliminary results.

Why is it important?

We demonstrated the accuracy of a 3D semiautomatic liver segmentation method for non-contrast CT. This method promises to offer radiologists a time-efficient segmentation aid.
