In a model-based validation scheme for organ segmentation in CT scan volumes, we propose a novel approach for accurate 3-D organ segmentation in the CT scan volumes. Instead of using the organ is prior information directly in the segmentation process, here we utilize the knowledge of the organ to validate a large number of potential segmentation component analysis approach using which the fidelity of each segment to the organ is measured. The applications of the proposed method for the 3-D segmentation of human kidney and liver in computed tomography scan volumes. Implementation is the stage of the project where the theoretical design is turn in to a working system. This project is implemented in the software of MATLAB simulation language using 7.10.0(R2010a) version outcomes that are generated by a generic segmentation process. For this, an organ space is generated based on the principal
