This research project aims to construct large-scale virtualized human database and to develop method to understand and recognize medical images. Also the project investigates method to utilize such results to assist diagnosis and treatment. Especially, this project aims to develop new scheme of medical image understanding and recognition. This project constructed virtualized human body database including over 600 volumes with organ labeling. Also the project developed a method to perform clustering these volumes based of differences of anatomical structures. Such clustering results were utilized for abdominal CT volume segmentation. Also, the project investigated several methods to utilize such results in diagnosis and treatment process of endoscopic surgery.
