Segmentation of the Liver 2007

Welcome to the website of the Segmentation of the Liver Competition 2007 (SLIVER07). The goal of this competition is to compare different algorithms to segment the liver from clinical 3D computed tomography (CT) scans.

This competition started as part of the workshop 3D Segmentation in the Clinic: A Grand Challenge, on October 29, 2007 in conjunction with MICCAI 2007. Teams that participated in the liver segmentation contest of this workshop downloaded training and test data and submitted the results of their algorithms on the test data to the workshop organizers. Those results can be found in the workshop proceedings. Later, they submitted their, sometimes updated, results to this website. The results listed on this site may therefore deviate from those in the workshop proceedings although the same data and scoring protocol was used.

During the workshop 3D Segmentation in the Clinic: A Grand Challenge most teams also participated in a live competition on ten new, not previously released, test scans. Those test scans are not available on this site. You can find the results from the live competition here.

The workshop is over, but through this website, the liver segmentation competition continues. You can browse the results of various systems, and read papers and descriptions about the methods that have been applied to the SLIVER07 data set. If you want to join the competition, you can register a team, download training and test data, and submit the results of your own algorithms, provided you adhere to and agree with the rules. More information is available in the answers to frequently asked questions.
