Paper Abstract

3D Computed Tomography (CT) image segmentation is already well established tool in medical research and in routine daily clinical practice. However, such techniques have not been used in the context of 3D CT image segmentation for baggage and package security screening using CT imagery. CT systems are increasingly used in airports for security baggage examination. We propose in this contribution an investigation of the current 3D CT medical image segmentation methods for use in this new domain. Experimental results of 3D segmentation on real CT baggage security imagery using a range of techniques are presented and discussed.
