Deformable Organisms Skullstripping

Created: 2011-09-14 23:13:44

Overview - Deformable Organisms Skullstripping

Pipeline will skull-strip an magnetic resonance (MR) image of the brain using a deformable organisms framework.

Problem addressed by this workflow

Segment or delineate the brain in whole head MR images. Creates a mask of the brain, separating it from skull, skin, eyes, neck, and cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF).

Detailed Workflow Usage & Specifications

The module takes ANALYZE or NIFTI magnetic resonance images of the head as input and will output a compressed NIFTI binary mask delineating a segmentation of the brain. Our method registers the subject image into a common space and performs deformable organisms segmentation. It then applies the inverse transform to the binary mask image back into native space to complete the segmentation.
