In the frame of 3D medical imaging, accurate segmentation of multimodal brain MR images is of interest for many brain disorders. However, due to several factors such as noise, imaging artifacts, intrinsic tissue variation and partial volume effects, tissue classification remains a challenging task. In this paper, we present a unifying framework for(More)
In this paper, we present a new automatic robust algorithm to segment multimodal brain MR images with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) lesions. The method performs tissue classification using a Hidden Markov Chain (HMC) model and detects MS lesions as outliers to the model. For this aim, we use the Trimmed Likelihood Estimator (TLE) to extract outliers. Furthermore,(More)
In this paper, we present a new Markovian scheme for MRI segmentation using a priori knowledge obtained from probability maps. Indeed we propose to use both triplet Markov chain and a brain atlas containing prior expectations about the spatial localization of the different tissue classes, to segment the brain in gray matter, white matter and cerebro-spinal(More)
For blood perfusion monitoring, laser speckle contrast (LSC) imaging is a recent non-contact technique that has the characteristic of delivering noise-like speckled images. To exploit LSC images for quantitative physiological measurements, we developed an approach that implements controlled spatial averaging to reduce the detrimental impact of the noise and(More)
