[…] basis of a method described by khalighi et al. [, ] with the dataset of the subjects from subject group 2, who additionally had contrast-enhanced mri examination. the active contour algorithm from itk snap (version 3.6.0) was used to extract the aorta volume va from the contrast-enhanced mr data. spill-out region was defined by summing up the early pet frames and segmenting the aorta […]
