We present a completely automatic method to build stablee average anatomical models of the human brain using a set of magnetic resonance (MR) images. The models computed present two important characteristics: an average intensity and an average shape, both in a single image. We provide results showing convergence toward the centroid of the image set used for the computation of the model. In particular, the RMS distances between the model and the MR images contained in the set stabilize in a… CONTINUE READING
