A Brief Survey of Segmentation Techniques Applied in Kidney Ultrasound Images

Stephan Vassilev

Abstract: The paper briefly explains research, domain and application related to the techniques applied in Kidney Ultrasound images. The first two sections introduce the domain area (ultrasound images and kidney problems related to them), the specific targets and formulate the problem. The rest two sections highlight the technologies and algorithms applied up to now, compare them and provide observations from that comparison. The paper also outlines some of the problems that can occur in different phases of the ultrasound kidney images.

Key words: Kidney, Ultrasound images, medical images, segmentation, models, graph, edge
