Abstract [en]

Image segmentation is the process of identifying and separating relevant objects and structures in an image. The purpose of segmentation is to simplify and/or change the representation of an image into something that is easier to analyze. SmartPaint is a software for semi-automatic segmentation of medical volume  images, developed by Filip Malmberg.  This thesis investigates whether SmartPaint is useful on several levels, such as usability, functionality and instructional effectiveness. The developer's ambition is that SmartPaint should be accessible to users without a background in computer science. Hence a formative usability study (Cooperative evaluation) was conducted, involving testing and interviewing participants. Given  the result from the study and feedback from the participants, design proposals are given. Furthermore, ideas on how to expand the functionality, the instructional effectiveness and the learnability of SmartPaint are given.
