Multimodal Retrieval Framework for Brain Volumes in 3D MR Volumes
- 24 Downloads
The paper presents retrieval framework for extracting similar 3D tumor volumes in magnetic resonance brain volumes in response to a query tumor volume. Similar volumes correspond to closeness in spatial location of the brain structures. Query slice pertains to a new tumor volume of a patient and the output slices belong to the tumor volumes related to previous case histories stored in the database. The framework could be of immense help to the medical practitioners. It might prove to be a useful diagnostic aid for the medical expert and also serve as a teaching aid for researchers.
