Background: This study analyzes liver segmentation and cancer detection work, with the perspectives of machine learning and deep learning and different image processing techniques from the year 2012 to 2020. The study uses different Bibliometric analysis methods.

Methods: The articles on the topic were obtained from one of the most popular databases- Scopus. The year span for the analysis is considered to be from 2012 to 2020. Scopus analyzer facilitates the analysis of the databases with different categories such as documents by source, year, and county and so on. Analysis is also done by using different units of analysis such as co-authorship, co-occurrences, citation analysis etc. For this analysis Vosviewer Version 1.6.15 is used.

Results: In the study, a total of 518 articles on liver segmentation and liver cancer were obtained between the years 2012 to 2020. From the statistical analysis and network analysis it can be concluded that, the maximum articles are published in the year 2020 with China is the highest contributor followed by United States and India.

Conclusions: Outcome from Scoups database is 518 articles with English language has the largest number of articles. Statistical analysis is done in terms of different parameters such as Authors, documents, country, affiliation etc. The analysis clearly indicates the potential of the topic. Network analysis of different parameters is also performed. This also indicate that there is a lot of scope for further research in terms of advanced algorithms of computer vision, deep learning and machine learning.
