In practice, it is found that drawing a rectangle is not convenient when the object has an irregular boundary. So users only need to draw several points outside the boundary of the object in one slice and the algorithm connects the points to produce a polygon as the ROI automatically. Meanwhile, the modified algorithm is verified on twenty brain volumes and the implemented algorithm is ready for public access. After manual initialization, nodes inside ROI are possible foreground and nodes outside ROI are background.

In this case, the ROC curve becomes a straight line Se = 1 − Sp . So the area under the ROC curve is a half of the area of a rectangle. 5. 5 the area under the ROC curve, the weaker the diagnostic capability of the index. We can calculate the area under the ROC curve by the following method. Let the diagnostic index be normally distributed as N (μ0 , σ02 ) in the population of non-patients. The sample size of patients is n1 , and the sample size of nonpatients is n0 . μ0 ) ˆ ˆ = (ˆμ1σˆ−ˆ , b = σσˆˆ01 .
