We demonstrate that simulated MR images obtained from Brainweb do not model the partial volume effect in a realistic fashion, and therefore cannot be used to evaluate medical image segmentation algorithms that rely on models of intensity distributions and incorporate partial volume effects. However, we make two observations; first, evaluation of segmentation algorithms on simulated data can only prove consistency between the assumptions incorporated into the simulation and segmentation… CONTINUE READING
