Atlas to Image-with-Tumor Registration Based on Demons and Deformation Inpainting
No opinion
This paper presents a method for nonlinear registration of images, where there exists no one-to-one correspondence in parts of the image. Such a situation occurs for instance in the case where an atlas of normal anatomy shall be matched to pathological data, [...]

MAP–Based Framework for Segmentation of MR Brain Images Based on Visual Appearance and Prior Shape
No opinion
We propose a new MAP-based technique for the unsupervised segmentation of different brain structures (white matter, gray matter, etc.) from T1-weighted MR brain images. In this paper, we follow a procedure like most conventional approaches, in which [...]

Automatic Brain Tissue Segmentation of Multi-sequence MR Images Using Random Decision Forests

Open Topology: A Toolkit for Brain Isosurface Correction
Isosurface extraction from brain images often creates handles between brain folds that are anatomically separated. Although manual editing could optimally correct these anatomical errors, it is not realistic due the size of the 3D data and the convoluted [...]
