Theme: Segmentation

 

Segmentation is typically the first step in extracting useful information from medical images, where we determine the underlying anatomy. Tissue segmentation, which partitions brain magnetic resonance (MR) images into gray matter (GM), white matter (WM), and  erebrospinal fluid (CSF), is a crucial step for subsequent volumetric and cortical surface analysis.  effective segmentation of neonatal brain images still remains a great challenge in many emerging neonatal studies, which have the potential of revealing interesting brain developmental patterns and also neurodevelopmental disorders.We develop segmentation schemes for healthy adults, neonatal (newborn) infants, and adults.
