Statistical shape models learned from a population of training shapes are frequently used as a shape prior. A key problem associated with their training is to provide a representative and large training set of (manual) segmentations. Therefore, models often suffer from the high-dimension-low-sample-size (HDLSS) problem, which limits their expressiveness and directly affects their performance.
