Medical image segmentation and visualization

Project will focus on rapid prototyping and testing of different algorithms for image segmentation as well as visualization of 3D data. In a first stage implementation and testing of suitable image segmentation techniques for medical image segmentation will be done. As an input data for image segmentation the consecutive series of CT or MRI medical images will be used. After the segmentation visualization of the obtained 3D data will be performed.
