In this paper, different methods to improve atlas based segmentation are presented. The first technique is a new mapping of the labels of an atlas consistent with a given intensity classification segmentation. This new mapping combines the two segmentations using the nearest neighbor transform and is especially effective for complex and folded regions like the cortex where the registration is difficult. Then, in a multi atlas context, an original weighting is introduced to combine the… CONTINUE READING
