We report a novel computer method for automatic labeling of structures in 3D MRI data sets using expert anatomical knowledge that is coded in fuzzy sets and fuzzy rules. The method first identifies major structures and then uses spatial relationships to these landmarks to recognize other structures. This labeling process simulates the iterative process that… CONTINUE READING
