CT scans of the pancreas from two patients (rows). The columns show (from l) the original CT image, a reference manual segmentation, an automated segmentation by use of deep learning, a manual segmentation by a second observer to compute interobserver variability and a repeat manual segmentation to compute intraobserver variability. The automated segmentations were used in a large-scale study of the effect of Type 2 diabetes on the pancreas.
