Paper Abstract

The basic framework of an expert rule-based segmentation system designed to handle some of the low-level segmentation problems in medical imaging is presented. The system is modular in nature consisting of two associative memories and a number of independent modules specialized in different aspects of segmentation. The basic control structure is that of a production system in which knowledge is formulated into condition-action rules. Some preliminary results pertaining to low-level segmentation of structures of the brain via magnetic resonance imaging are also presented.
