We propose an algorithm allowing the construction of a structural representation of the cortical topography from a T1-weighted 3D MR image. This representation is an attributed relational graph (ARG) inferred from the 3D skeleton of the object made up of the union of gray matter and cerebro-spinal fluid enclosed in the brain hull. In order to increase the robustness of the skeletonization, topological and regularization constraints are included in the segmentation process using an original… CONTINUE READING
