Segmentation is one of the main tasks in medical image analysis. Measuring the quality of 3D segmentation algorithms is an essential requirement during development and for evaluation. Various methods exist to measure the quality of a segmentation with respect to a reference segmentation. Validating interactive 3D segmentation approaches or methods for 3D segmentation editing is more complex, however. Using interactive tools, the user plays a central role during the segmentation process as he or she needs to react on intermediate results, making established static validation approaches insufficient. In this paper we present a method to automatically generate plausible user inputs for 3D sketch-based segmentation editing algorithms, to allow an objective and reproducible validation and comparison of such tools. The user inputs are generated iteratively based on the intermediate and the reference segmentation, while static quality measurements are tracked over time. We pre sent first results where we have compared two segmentation editing algorithms using our framework.
