Paper Abstract

In this paper a coarse region segmentation of liver cancer in ultrasound Images is introduced. The reason employing coarse region segmentation is to reflect the inhomogeneous distribution of the image gray levels and provide the features such as the distribution, shape and size of the suspect region of liver cancer. Then combine with the prior knowledge we can divide the image into three different classes, which the results of the analysis of the region's location can be used by a classifier in a multilayer classifier. Furthermore, the result of the coarse region segmentation will support the texture analysis for further classification. The segmentation is based on watershed algorithm in order to receive an integrated region and two processing techniques are adopted to avoid the over segmentation of watershed algorithm.
