Автоматическая сегментация артерии на 3D-УЗИ щитовидной железы

The method of automatic search and segmentation of thyroid gland arteries on threedimensional USI is offered. Decteion and segmentation of arteries are important initial stage of automatic ultrasonic images processing and organ segmentation. Vessels position on the USI can be used as a reference point for further USI processing and finding of organ areas. The feature of the offered algorithm is relative simplicity of its realization and high quality of results.
