A Comparative Analysis of MRI Automated Segmentation of Subcortical Brain Volumes in a Large Dataset of Elderly Subjects.

The characterization of the performance of brain segmentation algorithms in large datasets as the one presented here is a necessary step towards partially or fully automated end-to-end neuroimaging workflow both in clinical and research settings.

101 Labeled Brain Images and a Consistent Human Cortical Labeling Protocol

The Mindboggle-101 dataset is introduced, the largest and most complete set of free, publicly accessible, manually labeled human brain images, and a new cortical labeling protocol that relies on robust anatomical landmarks and minimal manual edits after initialization with automated labels is created.

Comparative Utility of Manual versus Automated Segmentation of Hippocampus and Entorhinal Cortex Volumes in a Memory Clinic Sample.

Assessment of the practical utility and reliability of automated FreeSurfer protocols compared to manual volumetry on routinely acquired clinical scans suggests further refinements to improve measurement error and most accurately depict true regional brain volumes using automated segmentation protocols are required to achieve maximal utility for routine clinical evaluations.

Automated parcellation of the brain surface generated from magnetic resonance images

A fast and reliable pipeline to automatically parcellate the cortical surface into sub-regions that can be used to study brain changes associated with psychiatric and neurological disorders is developed.

Automated volumetry and regional thickness analysis of hippocampal subfields and medial temporal cortical structures in mild cognitive impairment

Thickness analysis results are consistent with volumetry, but provide additional regional specificity and suggest nonuniformity in the effects of aMCI on hippocampal subfields and MTL cortical subregions.

Quantification of Inter-subject Variability in Human Brain and Its Impact on Analysis of fMRI Data

This thesis assessed the impact of anatomy-based alignment techniques (VB, and ROI-based methods) on sensitivity of fMRI data group analysis, and proposed a novel approach for automatic segmentation of Heschl's gyrus, which is the landmark for primary auditory cortex.

An automated method for accurately measuring the thickness of the cerebral cortex across the entire brain and for generating cross-subject statistics in a coordinate system based on cortical anatomy is presented.

MRI of human entorhinal cortex: a reliable protocol for volumetric measurement

Three‐dimensional maximum probability atlas of the human brain, with particular reference to the temporal lobe

This work has expanded and refined existing algorithms for the subdivision of MRI datasets into anatomical structures, and used the normalized superimposed atlases to create a maximum probability map in stereotaxic space, which retains quantitative information regarding inter‐subject variability.

Automated Anatomical Labeling of Activations in SPM Using a Macroscopic Anatomical Parcellation of the MNI MRI Single-Subject Brain

An anatomical parcellation of the spatially normalized single-subject high-resolution T1 volume provided by the Montreal Neurological Institute was performed and it is believed that this tool is an improvement for the macroscopical labeling of activated area compared to labeling assessed using the Talairach atlas brain.

Gyri of the human neocortex: an MRI-based analysis of volume and variance.

The nature of the covariance structure of the data will lead to future hypotheses regarding the relationships between the various potential genetic and epigenetic gyral influencing factors, and the proper statistical methods of handling volumetric data in morphometric studies.

Human Cerebral Cortex: Localization, Parcellation, and Morphometry with Magnetic Resonance Imaging

We describe a system of parcellation of the human brain that is based on the functional anatomy of the cerebral cortex and that is applied to the analysis of magnetic resonance images. This system is

Labeled cortical mantle distance maps of the cingulate quantify differences between dementia of the Alzheimer type and healthy aging

The cingulate gyri in 37 subjects with and without early dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT) were studied by using MRI at 1.0 mm3 isotropic resolution to find no significant change between young controls and healthy aging as measured by the GM volume and cortical mantle distribution as a function of distance.
