A Joint Registration and Segmentation Approach to Skull Stripping
Extraction of the cerebrum, cerebellum, and brain stem from structural magnetic resonances images (MRIs) is an important initial step in neuroimaging. We present an automated algorithm that solves this difficult problem, often referred to as skull stripping, which is novel for its use of registration, segmentation, and morphological operations. Our algorithm is also concerned with an accurate representation of the grey matter boundary, which is a unique feature. We also present results demonstrating the accuracy of this approach.
