Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a novel and fast approach for automatic estimation of the fetal weights from 3D ultrasound data. Conventional manual approaches are time-consuming and involve inconsistence by different sonographers because of the difficulty to trace limb boundaries in complicated Ultrasound limb volumes. It takes up to 10 minutes to manually trace the surface borders of a 20cm long limb. Using our automatic approach, the time is significantly reduced to 2.1 seconds for measuring the weights based on the entire limb. Experiments with the automatic approach also show comparable standard deviation and limits of agreement to the manual approaches.
