Automatic prostate segmentation in MR images is a meaningful work, not only can be used in the first step of the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System, but also helps to predict pathologic stage of disease by determining the prostate volume. Here we show a novel new method can get the prostate contour for both T2WI and DWI fast and accurately without any manual intervention. The segmentation accuracies for 60 images are 83.7% (T2WI) and 87.1% (DWI). Even in some cases, such as prostate hyperplasia, our method shows good robustness.
