In most approaches, tissue and subcortical structure segmentations of MR brain scans are handled globally over the entire brain volume through two relatively independent sequential steps. We propose a fully Bayesian joint model that integrates local tissue and structure segmentations and local intensity distributions. It is based on the specification of three conditional Markov Random Field (MRF) models. The first two encode cooperations between tissue and structure segmentations and integrate… CONTINUE READING
