  1. Resource Description
    "Currently, segmentation of QCT scans is done using manual drawing software. With this software, the radiation oncologist outlines the prostate region on a stack of cross-sectional x-ray slices that constitute the prostate. This procedure is tedious and time-consuming. (An experienced radiation oncologist would need to work full-time for about 8 months to segment the 4000 CT images in the MrOS cohort, assuming 15 minutes per scan, unvalidated.) This is a major drawback to using CT images in efficiently diagnosing and researching prostate diseases. The software resulting from this study is a computer-based segmentation algorithm of the prostate that is greatly needed."
