Paper Abstract

We describe a GUI-based system called INTERSEG that can define 3D radiological image-segmentation processes. Using INTERSEG's GUI interface, the user first defines interactively some problem cues, which specify a segmentation task. Then, INTERSEG uses the cues to automatically construct a process for the task. The process consists of automatic image-processing operations, such as image enhancement, image segmentation, shape analysis, and measurement. With other systems the user must resort to trial- and-error experimentation to construct such processes.
