Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This paper presents a new atlas-based segmentation framework for the delineation of major regions in magnetic resonance brain images employing an atlas of the global topological structure as well as a statistical atlas of the regions of interest. A segmentation technique using fast marching methods and tissue classification is proposed that guarantees strict topological equivalence between the segmented image and the atlas. Experimental validation on simulated and real brain images shows that the method is accurate and robust.
