ROI-based tissue type extraction and volume estimation in 3D brain anatomy

CK Mohan N Pattabhi Ramaiah C. Krishna Mohan
In recent times, ROI-based extraction and volume estimation of various brain tissue types has gained immense attention from medical and computational research community. In diagnosing certain diseases, the volume of a specific brain region (eg Hippocampus) needs to be estimated to the best possible accuracy. Compared to the whole brain approaches, Region of Interest (ROI)-based approaches require an additional task of locating the ROI on subjects MRI. Given that no two brains are of the same size and shape, automatic ...
