Using InShape models for the segmentat- ion of (medical) images

The basis software framework as well as the basis methods for the segmentationof medical images was developed in the course of the project "Modular model based segmentation framework"(MMS)". For more details on the developed methods and algorithms that have been developed at the IBIA and MSMI, please also refer to the corresponding publications.
