Tissue segmentation of the cerebellum from MR images

Woods, Keri (2011)


The cerebellum is known to be very susceptible to prenatal exposure to alcohol and people affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) show a decrease in cerebellar volume. Unfortunately, there seems to be little work that focuses specifically on cerebellum tissue segmentation. We set out to produce a method, as automated as possible, that segments the cerebellum into grey and white matter, capturing as much of the fine detail as possible.
