Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) To detect the prostate cancer and assess the tumor stage, we present an automatic segmentation method that uses a prior knowledge of prostate shape to arrive at the exact prostate contour in MR images. First, statistical shape model of the prostate is constructed by using parametric mapping and PCA analysis. Then, the prostate contour is delineated by using Active Shape Model. To improve the segmentation of the apex in patients with prostatic hypertrophy, the two-dimensional correction method using gradient information is proposed. Our method has been applied to ten MR data sets. The result was evaluated using radiologist。ッs manual segmentation. The average distance difference error was 0.36mm and the overlapping volume ratio was 95%.
