Multiatlas methods have been successful for brain segmentation, but their application to smaller anatomies remains relatively unexplored. We evaluate seven statistical and voting-based label fusion algorithms (and six additional variants) to segment the optic nerves, eye globes, and chiasm. For nonlocal simultaneous truth and performance level estimation(More)
Spleen segmentation on clinically acquired CT data is a challenging problem given the complicity and variability of abdominal anatomy. Multi-atlas segmentation is a potential method for robust estimation of spleen segmentations, but can be negatively impacted by registration errors. Although labeled atlases explicitly capture information related to feasible(More)
The optic nerve is a sensitive central nervous system structure, which plays a critical role in many devastating pathological conditions. Several methods have been proposed in recent years to segment the optic nerve automatically, but progress toward full automation has been limited. Multi-atlas methods have been successful for brain segmentation, but their(More)
Multi-atlas methods have been successful for brain segmentation, but their application to smaller anatomies remains relatively unexplored. We evaluate 7 statistical and voting-based label fusion algorithms (and 6 additional variants) to segment the optic nerves, eye globes and chiasm. For non-local STAPLE, we evaluate different intensity similarity measures(More)
Drug and vaccination therapies are important tools in the battle against infectious diseases such as HIV and influenza. However, many viruses, including HIV, can rapidly escape the therapeautic effect through a sequence of mutations. We propose to design vaccines, or, equivalently, antibody sequences that make such evasion difficult. We frame this as a(More)
The optic nerve (ON) plays a critical role in many devastating pathological conditions. Segmentation of the ON has the ability to provide understanding of anatomical development and progression of diseases of the ON. Recently, methods have been proposed to segment the ON but progress toward full automation has been limited. We optimize registration and(More)
The common squirrel monkey, Saimiri sciureus, is a New World monkey with functional and microstructural organization of central nervous system similar to that of humans. It is one of the most commonly used South American primates in biomedical research. Unlike its Old World macaque cousins, no digital atlases have described the organization of the squirrel(More)
