Abstract

Many of the patients in liver functions need to donors that organ. Measurement of the liver needs optimal cute, accurate and faster. The measuring non-geometric soft organs in the human body using algorithms bank method to obtain the measuring liver volume with high accuracy, reducing the error rate and more fasting. In the realization of the objectives of this paper, developing a platform for measuring the liver volume with high accuracy and reduce the error rate, designing and develop the algorithm or more to calculate the liver volume with high accuracy and reduce the error rate, designing and developing a computer-aided measurement of liver volume in hepatic CT and MRI using computer graphics and visualization. The research method of this paper divided into four phases, phase one is image source, which is used to convert image source from CT and MRI to DICOM file. Phase two software application and development, which is used to remove image noise, enhance the liver boundary and liver image segmentation. Phase three template prototype application and measurement, which is used to create a template, compare the source image DICOM file with the template and restore an image as a template. Phase four compare the liver volume measurement with Gold standard reading, which is used to determine accuracy and error rate. The framework represents in three layers, technique layer, image layer and application layer. The research focusing on the application layer, which is divided into four stages represent in removing the image noise (internal and external) by Anisotropic diffusion filter and Median filter. Enhancing the liver boundary by A scale-specific gradient magnitude filter and Gaussian filter. Segmentation by hybrid based framework method using three algorithms, fast marching, Geodesic active contour, and level set. To make sure the fading of mistake and access to the value is zero, use one of the Artificial Intelligence techniques, which is the Artificial Neural Network. The template is a method to measure liver volume, which uses the template to measure the volume of the liver automatically instead of using the manual since the manual used the Gold standard method.
