摘要As positron-emission tomography (PET) images have low spatial resolution and much noise, accurate image segmentation is one of the most challenging issues in tumor quantification. Tumors of the uterine cervix present a particular challenge because of urine activity in the adjacent bladder. Here, we propose and validate an automatic segmentation method adapted to cervical tumors. Our proposed methodology combined the gradient field information of both the filtered PET image and the level set function into a level set framework by constructing a new evolution equation. Furthermore, we also constructed a new hyperimage to recognize a rough tumor region using the fuzzy c-means algorithm according to the tissue specificity as defined by both PET (uptake) and computed tomography (attenuation) to provide the initial zero level set, which could make the segmentation process fully automatic. The proposed method was verified based on simulation and clinical studies. For simulation studies, seven different phantoms, representing tumors with homogenous/heterogeneous-low/high uptake patterns and different volumes, were simulated with five different noise levels. Twenty-seven cervical cancer patients at different stages were enrolled for clinical evaluation of the method. Dice similarity coefficients (DSC) and Hausdorff distance (HD) were used to evaluate the accuracy of the segmentation method, while a Bland-Altman analysis of the mean standardized uptake value (SUVmean) and metabolic tumor volume (MTV) was used to evaluate the accuracy of the quantification. Using this method, the DSCs and HDs of the homogenous and heterogeneous phantoms under clinical noise level were 93.39 +/- 1.09% and 6.02 +/- 1.09 mm, 93.59 +/- 1.63% and 8.92 +/- 2.57 mm, respectively. The DSCs and HDs in patients measured 91.80 +/- 2.46% and 7.79 +/- 2.18 mm. Through Bland-Altman analysis, the SUVmean and the MTV using our method showed high correlation with the clinical gold standard. The results of both simulation and clinical studies demonstrated the accuracy, effectiveness, and robustness of the proposed method. Further assessment of the quantitative indices indicates the feasibility of this algorithm in accurate quantitative analysis of cervical tumors in clinical practice.
