Project Description

Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps
  • Segmentation of prostate and its sectors
  • Specifically, segmentation of the following prostate sectors: peripheral zones, transition zones, central zone, anterior fibromuscular stroma and urethral sphincter
  • Generation/ Refinement of ground truth data
  • Creation of a 3D sector model
  • Test with ProstateX challenge dataset (where zones of findings are given) to predict the zone with Deep Learning
  • if more training data is available: deep learning for an automatic sector segmentation
  • Try atlas-based segmentation approach to map zone segmentations on more datasets


  • Creation of 3 zone segmentations of the prostate (different volumes)
  • Prediction of zones for specific locations in ProstateX dataset with Deep Learning is in progress
  • Next Steps: Create 3D model with higher resolution. Atlas based segmentation on more publicly available data.
