Abstract
In this paper we propose a semi-automatic method to segment the fetal cerebellum in ultrasound images. The method is based on an active shape model which includes profiles of Hermite features. In order to fit the shape model we used a PCA of Hermite features. This model was tested on ultrasound images of the fetal brain taken from 20 pregnant women with gestational weeks varying from 18 to 24. Segmentation results compared to manual annotation show a mean Hausdorff distance of 6.85 mm using a conventional active shape model trained with gray profiles, and a mean Hausdorff distance of 5.67 mm using Hermite profiles. We conclude that the Hermite profile model is more robust in segmenting fetal cerebellum in ultrasound images.
