First row shows sample MRI slices from S, C, and A views (red contour is ground-truth and green one is output of proposed method). Second-to-fifth rows: 3D surface visualization for the ground-truth and the output generated by the proposed method w.r.t simple fusion (F), adaptive fusion (AF), and the new loss function (SP).
