A New Approach to 3D Sulcal Ribbon Finding from MR Images
Abstract. Sulcal medial surfaces are 3D thin convoluted ribbons embedded in cortical sulci, and they provide distinctive anatomical features of the brain. Here we propose a new approach to automatic intrasulcal ribbon finding, following our work on cortex segmentation with coupled surfaces via level set methods, where the outer cortical surface is embedded as the zero level set of a high-dimensional distance function. Through the utilization of this distance function, we are able to formulate the sulcal ribbon finding problem as one of surface deformation, thus avoiding possible control problems in other work using sliding contour models. Using dynamic programming and deformable surface models, our method requires little manual intervention and results parameterized sulcal ribbon surfaces in nearly real-time. Though a natural follow up to our earlier segmentation work, we describe how it can be applied with general segmentation methods. We also present quantitative results on 15 MR b...
