We present a method for semi-automatic segmentation of the liver from CT scans. True 3D interaction with haptic feedback is used to facilitate initialization, i.e., seeding of a fast marching algorithm. Four users initialized 52 datasets and the mean interaction time was 40 seconds. The segmentation accuracy was verified by a radiologist. Volume measurements and segmentation precision show that the method has a high reproducibility.
