摘要：A parallel segmentation algorithm of single medical image and sequence images based on active contour model is proposed in this paper. We give out the initial contour forecast segmentation model of 3D medical image first, and then, numerical solution of the image segmentation model algorithm is presented, send data blocks to different processors to do numerical calculations, finally combine the segmentation results. At the same time, parallel designing methods of node allocation, task allocation, and load balancing methods are researched. The experiment results show that the parallel method can significantly improve the segmentation speed of 3D medical image. © 2014 WIT Press.
