Abstract: In this paper we propose an implicit active contour for infra-tentorial tumour segmentation guided by texture characteristics. This work proceeds within the therapeutic procedures guided by imaging to optimise the treatment of these tumours while preserving surrounding healthy tissue.
Keywords: image segmentation; infra tentorial tumours; MRI; magnetic resonance imaging; texture; level sets; implicit active contours; tumour lesions; brain tumours; posterior fossa tumours; medical images.
