The variations in the intensity scale in Magnetic Resonance Images pose a problem for many tasks and Intensity Standardization (IS) aims to solve this problem. Existing methods generally use landmark values of the image histogram and match it to a standard scale. The landmarks are often chosen to be percentiles from different segmented tissues. We propose a method for IS in which tissue information (via segmentation) is needed during training but not during testing by using landmark propagation… CONTINUE READING
