VESsel SEgmentation in the Lung 2012

The VESSEL12 challenge compares methods for automatic (and semi-automatic) segmentation of blood vessels in the lungs from CT images. The challenge is organized in conjunction with the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2012) , held in Barcelona, Spain, from 2 to 5 May 2012.The results of this challenge will be presented during a workshop held in the morning of the first day of ISBI, May 2nd, Barcelona.

Who can participate?

Any team, whether from academia or industry, can join.

How does it work?

After registering on this site, a team can download a number of CT-scans of the lungs. Each team then submits a probabilistic segmentation of the vessels in each scan, and a description of their algorithm. Each submission is evaluated against a reference standard. The evaluation results will be presented at the ISBI 2012 workshop and will be published on this site. After the workshop, an overview article with all teams as co-authors, will be compiled by the organizers of the challenge.
