Shape prior image segmentation

Statistical shape prior using manifold learning

Joint work with Arturo Mendoza Quispe

In this work, we build a statistical prior using a manifold learning technique (Diffusion Maps) and include it in a graph cut framework. We have described the method in Shape prior based image segmentation using manifold learning, A. Mendoza Quispe and C. Petitjean, accepted at IEEE IPTA, 2015.

Some results on right ventricle segmentation in cardiac magnetic resonance images:


Matlab Code: our segmentation code is available here. The code is compatible with Matlab version 8 with the Image Processing Toolbox.

It requires the use of the following code:

Please note: The code is provided without data. The code is a proposition of the implementation of the algorithm that is described in the above-cited paper [Mendoza Quispe and Petitjean, 2015]. It is provided « as is » without any support nor warranty and cannot be guaranteed completely bug-free. We appreciate a citation of our paper in case the code is used.
