Model Based Segmentation

MBS Framework

The Model Based Segmentation Framework provides you with the infrastructure for the fully automatic segmentation of organs and their substructures in multi-modal images. This is achieved by applying a generic organ model to the images of a specific case.

The segmentation is performed very efficiently, delivering quantitative and reproducible results.

Currently available organ models:


• heart model for MRI
• heart model for CTA
• prostate model for MRI


Other specific models can be developed upon customer request.
