Aims and objectives
Living Donor Liver Transplantation (LDLT) is the commonest form of liver transplantation in Asia.
While Deceasead Donor Liver Transplantation (DDLT) constitutes more than 90% of liver transplantation in the western world,
in India and many other Asian countries,
the majority of transplants performed are LDLT. Living Donor Liver Transplants is now a well established procedure and has reduced liver transplant waiting list mortality.
The complexities of the procedure,
along with the donor...
Methods and materials
Data Preparation A test dataset of 15 multi-phasic contrast-enhanced CT scans was provided by Centre for Advanced Research in Imaging,
Neurosciences and Genomics (CARING),
India. Exclusion Criteriaentailed: Morphologic features of cirrhosis, History of prior liver/biliary surgery or liver tumor ablation procedures One or more liver lesions greater than 3 cm in size identified by CT or MRI Portal or hepatic vein thrombosis. All studies were acquired on a 128-MDCT GE Discovery IQ...
Consistency in Liver Volumes In Fig.
we can see the volumes (in ml ) obtained for the two setups.
The liver volumes for the studies are consistent over the two setups with a maximum variation of 2.3% and an average variation of 0.9%. Duration of Segmentation : Manual vs Automated In Fig.
we can see the time taken (in mins ) for performing liver volumetry on the two setups.
Automation of liver volumetry accelerated the post processing significantly.
Automated Liver volumetry on...
The study shows that liver volumetry post processing can be significantly accelerated by initializing with Deep Learning based segmentation.
We compared two setups : (1) Commercial CT Volume Viewer and (2) PredibleLiver.
We foundPredibleLiver to require lesser time inperforming volumetric assessment over15 studies as the segmentations comepre-initalized using Deep Learning.
