Abstract

Hierarchical image segmentation techniques have been applied to spin-echo magnetic resonance images of the brain. From T1- and T2-weighted clinical images, areas representing gray matter, white matter and cerebrospinal fluid were segmented. In the segmentations a priori anatomic information was used and the procedures were performed in an ordered sequence of anatomy.
