Statistical imaging together with other machine learning techniques are the epitome of digitalizing healthcare and are culminating towards developing innovative tools for automatic analysis of three-dimensional radiological images — PET (Positron Emission Tomography) images. In this project, we have developed a kernel smoothing probability contour method on PET image segmentation which can be trained with a relatively low number of samples. A clear advantage of our kernel smoothing probability contour method is that it provides a surface over images which produces contour-based results rather than pixel-wise results, thus mimicking human observers’ behaviour. In addition, our methodology provides the tools for developing a probabilistic approach with uncertainty measurement along with the segmentation.
