In nuclear medicine, segmentation techniques are used to detect the extent of a tissue, an organ, a tumour inside an image, the boundaries of structures in cases that these are ambiguous and the areas that radiopharmaceutical concentrate in a greater extent. Thus, the segmentation process serves in assisting the implementation of other procedures; in other words, it constitutes the fundamental step of some basic medical image processing.
