Title: IMAGE SEGMENTATION AND PREDICTION OF SEGMENTATION
Abstract:
Systems and methods are provided for generating and using statistical data which is indicative of a difference in shape of a type of anatomical structure between images acquired by a first imaging modality and images acquired by a second imaging modality. This statistical data may then be used to modify a first segmentation of the anatomical structure which is obtained from an image acquired by the first imaging modality so as to predict the shape of the anatomical structure in the second imaging modality, or in general, to generate a second segmentation of the anatomical structure as it may appear in the second imaging modality based on the statistical data and the first segmentation.
