A new fast automated algorithm has been developed to segment the brain from T1-weighted volume MR images. The algorithm uses automated thresholding and morphological operations. It is fully three-dimensional and therefore independent of scan orientation. The validity and the performance of the algorithm were evaluated by comparing the automatically calculated brain volume with semi-automated measurements in 10 subjects, by calculating the brain volume from repeated scans in another 10 subjects… CONTINUE READING
