In this paper, we propose a full-automatic algorithm for extracting elongated object from CT image. Given an input image, we use the SWT(Stroke Width Transform) and MM(Mathematical Morphology) to locate the coarse location of target. Thus leading to over-segmentation. In order to refine the segmentation result, Levelset method is applied to make the contour fit the object. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm gives precise contour in elongated object segmentation.
