Welcome to the website of the Segmentation of the Liver Competition 2007 (SLIVER07). The goal of this competition is to compare different algorithms to segment the liver from clinical 3D computed tomography (CT) scans.

This competition started as part of the workshop 3D Segmentation in the Clinic: A Grand Challenge, on October 29, 2007 in conjunction with MICCAI 2007. Teams that participated in the liver segmentation contest of this workshop downloaded training and test data and submitted the results of their algorithms on the test data to the workshop organizers. Those results can be found in the workshop proceedings. Later, they submitted their results to this website. 

During the workshop 3D Segmentation in the Clinic: A Grand Challenge most teams also participated in a live competition on ten new, not previously released, test scans. Those test scans are not available on this site. You can find the results from the live competition here.

For years, SLIVER07 was maintained by Tobias Heimann, but in 2019 we ported the old website to grand-challenge.org. Through this website, SLIVER07 continues. You can browse the results of various systems, and read papers and descriptions about the methods that have been applied to the SLIVER07 data set. If you want to join the competition, you can register, download training and test data, and submit the results of your own algorithms, provided you adhere to and agree with the rules. More information is available in the answers to frequently asked questions.

SLIVER07 was organized by Tobias Heimann, Bram van Ginneken, and Martin Styner. The original website was ported to grand-challenge.org by Gabriel Humpire and started to receive new submission end of February 2019. Initially a range of submissions without proper description file were submitted. As of May 2019, we manually check if submissions are accompanied by a proper description file or URL.
