This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention, MICCAI'99, held in Cambridge, UK, in September 1999. The 133 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 213 full-length papers submitted. The book is divided into topical sections on data-driven segmentation, segmentation using structural models, image processing and feature detection, surfaces and shape, measurement and interpretation, spatiotemporal and diffusion tensor analysis, registration and fusion, visualization, image-guided intervention, robotic systems, and biomechanics and simulation.4 Conclusion and Future Research Tamed Snakes combine powerful editing semantics with traditional edge tracking methods so as to provide a robust segmentation tool. Although Tamed Snakes are, in the case of clear boundaries, not as fast and elegant as traditional Snakes, the advantages of ... has to be carried out in the field of model-based initialisations in order to reduce the necessary initial user interaction. ... Fast, accurate, and reproducible live-wire boundary extraction.
