Abstract
This paper presents a method for automated detection of liver cancer regions based on transition of density at each point obtained from multi-phase X-ray CT images. For describing transition of density, two kinds of feature vectors named Density Transition (DT) and Density Change Transition (DCT) are introduced. DCT is used for extraction of cancer candidates and DT is used for suppression of false candidates. In the experiments using 14 real abdominal CT images with cancer, it was shown that the detection rate was 100% and the number of false-positives was 0.71 regions per case.
