The bilateral parotid glands were segmented using a registration scheme followed by level set segmentation. A training set consisting of computerized tomography from 10 patients with segmentation of the bilateral glands were used to optimize the parameters of registration and level set segmentation. The method was evaluated on a test set consisting of 8 corresponding data sets. The attained total volume Dice coefficient and mean Haussdorff distance were 0.61 ± 0.20 and 15.6 ± 7.4 mm respectively. The method has improvement potential which could be exploited in order for clinical introduction.
