METHOD. The mode of operating or the means of attaining an object.
     2. It has been questioned whether the method of making a thing can be patented. But it has been considered that a method or mode may be the subject of a patent, because, when the object of two patents or effects to be produced is essentially the same, they may both be valid, if the modes of attaining the desired effect are essentially different.

From the above table, it can be noted that our proposed segmentation method provides an overall accuracy of 97.8% in segmenting the Coronal and Sagittal Chest CT images more effectively
[12] proposed a video object segmentation method based on super-trajectory representation.
This principle can be applied to the threshold segmentation algorithm (an improved adaptive threshold segmentation method [23]) by setting the parameter to calculate adaptive and variable thresholds.
Comparing with other threshold segmentation methods, this improved histogram segmentation method is more accurate, as shown in Figure 3.
Relying on traditional machine learning methods, these segmentation methods have achieved great success.
Generally, results show the tendency of the adaptive threshold method to overestimate the volume, while the fixed threshold segmentation method always underestimates it.
These results show the effectiveness of our segmentation method compared to the other methods.
The proposed stratified segmentation method combines hue and hue layer textures to divide scenes, which is theoretically more similar to the human visual mechanism.
In this paper, we propose an automatic juxta-vascular nodule segmentation method. The multiple features in PETCT images based on an LBF active contour model are used to drive the evolution of a contour curve to stop at the edge of the pulmonary nodule accurately.
