Generation of a Statistical Shape Model (SSM) of the liver

  • The aim of this work is the creation and a first validation of an SSM of the liver. For this purpose, a small literature search regarding the liver anatomy and SSM is necessary. The knowledge gained should be used to create the SSM. Multiple 3D CT models and robust correspondences between the models are required. After the SSM has been created, it should be validated with regard to some standard metrics (generalization, compactness and specificity). Afterwards, an experiment should be carried out, which shows the applicability of the SSM.
