The aim of this work was to create a fully-automated segmentation algorithm for the lateral brain ventricles from 3-D MRI T1-weighted scans. The algorithm is based on atlas-based definition of a region of interest, followed by iterative filling, provided on a the distance map.

Key Words
automated segmentation, brain imaging, neuroimaging, atlas-based segmentation, MRI, lateral ventricles
