Automatic liver segmentation in CT using deep learning
Trained U-Net on the LITS dataset is automatically downloaded when running the inference script and can be used as you wish, ENJOY! :)
The figure shows a predicted liver mask with the corresponding patient CT in 3DSlicer. It is the Volume-10 from the LITS17 dataset.
- Clone repo:
git clone https://github.com/andreped/livermask.git cd livermask
- Create virtual environment and intall dependencies:
virtualenv -ppython3 venv source venv/bin/activate pip install -r /path/to/requirements.txt
- Run livermask method:
cd livermask python livermask.py "path_to_ct_nifti.nii" "output_name.nii"
If you lack any modules after, try installing them through setup.py (could be done instead of using requirements.txt):
pip install wheel python setup.py bdist_wheel
Pipeline assumes input is in the NIfTI format, and output a binary volume in the same format (.nii). DICOM can be converted to NIfTI using the CLI dcm2niix, as such:
dcm2niix -s y -m y -d 1 "path_to_CT_folder" "output_name"
Note that "-d 1" assumed that "path_to_CT_folder" is the folder just before the set of DICOM scans you want to import and convert. This can be removed if you want to convert multiple ones at the same time. It is possible to set "." for "output_name", which in theory should output a file with the same name as the DICOM folder, but that doesn't seem to happen...
You might have issues downloading the model when using VPN. If any issues are observed, try to disable VPN and try again.
