3D Segmentation for Medical RP???

   I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether they know of anyone
using volumetric segmentation methods when creating medical RP models
from CT or MRI scan data. Slice-by-slice seems to be the popular way
to go, since RP data needs to be sliced at some point anyway, but
reconstructing the contour data to get a solid model can be a pain in
the neck. I understand that Materialise uses a volume growing
algorithm...does anyone know any other research/companies that use
a volumetric algorithm? We are considering doing just such a thing
using a deformable model. Thanks....
