Evaluation of measures with time-saving during contouring

Automatic organ-at-risk segmentation algorithms allow faster delineation times, but clinically relevant contour evaluation remains challenging. Commonly used measures to assess automatic contours, such as volumetric Dice Similarity Coefficient (DSC) or Hausdorff distance, have shown to be good measures for geometric similarity, but do not always correlate with clinical applicability of the contours. This study aimed to evaluate the correlation of new and commonly used evaluation measures with timesaving during contouring.
