© 2017, Springer International Publishing AG. Segmentation of anatomy on abdominal CT enables patient-specific image guidance in clinical endoscopic procedures and in endoscopy training. Because robust interpatient registration of abdominal images is necessary for existing multi-atlas- and statistical-shape-model-based segmentations, but remains challenging, there is a need for automated multi-organ segmentation that does not rely on registration. We present a deep-learning-based algorithm for segmenting the liver, pancreas, stomach, and esophagus using dilated convolution units with dense skip connections and a new spatial prior. The algorithm was evaluated with an 8-fold cross-validation and compared to a joint-label-fusion-based segmentation based on Dice scores and boundary distances. The proposed algorithm yielded more accurate segmentations than the joint-label-fusion-ba sed algorithm for the pancreas (median Dice scores 66 vs 37), stomach (83 vs 72) and esophagus (73 vs 54) and marginally less accurate segmentation for the liver (92 vs 93). We conclude that dilated convolutional networks with dense skip connections can segment the liver, pancreas, stomach and esophagus from abdominal CT without image registration and have the potential to support image-guided navigation in gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures.
