Abstract
In this paper, we introduce a parallel algorithm to implement the Region Growing algorithms in GPU, with the purpose of 3D organ segmentation. Extensive Experiments have been executed on human CT Data, and these experiments show that the algorithms obtain accurate results with a speed about 10-20 times faster than the traditional methods on CPU. Several improvements to the traditional region growing algorithms are also introduced in this paper. This method is integrated in several surgery planning and surgery navigation systems and has achieved good clinical results.
