Abstract

In this paper, we introduce the centerline extraction processes of the liver vessel systems by using the plug-ins in ImageJ and 3D Slicer. The Skeletonize (2D/3D) plug-in in ImageJ is easy to use, and only based on the volumetric data. It performs fast and require no user interactions in terms of seed points selection. The VMTK toolkit in 3D slicer is more powerful. It uses the surface model and can provide more smooth and consistent results. Due to its complexities, it requires more computational resources and user specified seed points. Some possible improvements for these two methods are discussed.
