Extension Description

This tool provides an Editor-Effect for semi-automated segmentation of tumors and hot lymph nodes in PET scans. A detailed description and evaluation of the method can be found in Beichel et al. (2016): "Semiautomated Segmentation of Head and Neck Cancers in 18F-FDG PET Scans: A Just-Enough-Interaction Approach", in Medical Physics. http://dx.doi.org/10.1118/1.4948679
