Abstract: This paper presents an interactive system based on algorithms for analysis, segmentation and recognition of organs obtained from magnetic resonance images (MRI), ultrasounds (US) or computed tomography (CT). The purpose of image segmentation is to group clusters of pixels in the continuous regions, for example, regions corresponding to individual surfaces, natural objects or parts of objects. Segmentation is used for recognition bodies, viewed as objects, estimating the limits of encounter between organs or systems în case of motion or stereo systems of images compression, image editing, or the search for images în databases.

Keywords: analysis, medical image,  image  segmentation,  compression, reconstruction.
