This paper describes results for an ongoing research on the segmentation of the posterior fossa and the structures it contains in fetal brain MR images. A semi-automatic segmentation algorithm based on Dijkstra’s algorithm and a fast marching level set method is suggested. The algorithm has been tested on a small number of images and compared to manual segmentations done by experts. It shows reasonable results, but a more elaborate study with more data is needed to statistically evaluate the proposed algorithm.
