  • Publication number: 20230134976
    Abstract: The present invention provides an image processing method capable of intuitively recognizing the three-dimensional shape of an organ by limiting the inspection range to the vicinity of the diagnostic target organ in image diagnosis. Given binary three-dimensional data representing an object in three-dimensional space, the image processing method partitions the object into individual segments with boundaries on narrow parts of the object's shape. A series of organs with no numerical differences in the boundaries on the image data can be segmented into individual organs at geometrically constricted locations because the connected organs can be identified by their shape. As a result, it is possible to examine a limited area specific to the target organ during image diagnosis, and to perform the examination while viewing the intuitive 3D shape of the organ during image interpretation.
