Background: Recent advances suggest that measurement of brain volumes in babies born prematurely can help define biomarkers for neurodevelopmental outcome. However, due to poor contrast, partial volume (PV), and significant natural and pathological anatomical variability, techniques that measure brain volume are prone to error.Methods: We propose an image segmentation that uses a maximum a posteriori Expectation Maximisation algorithm with novel adaptive priors on intensities and tissue… CONTINUE READING
