Abstract

This paper presents a genetic algorithm (GA) for combining representations of learned priors such as shape, regional properties and relative location of organs into a single framework in order to perform automated segmentation of the prostate. Prostate segmentation is typically performed manually by an expert physician and is used to determine the locations for radioactive seed placement during radiotherapy treatment planning. The GA accounts for the uncertainty in the definitions of tumor margins by combining known representations of shape, texture and relative location of organs to perform automatic segmentation in two (2D) as well as three dimensions (3D).
