3D Morphometric and Morphologic Information Derived From Clinical Brain MR Images
Data from conventional clinical MR brain images were processed using multi-step computerized segmentation as well as 3D analysis and rendering techniques. The usefulness of so obtained morphometric information and morphologic display for the development of new concepts for diagnosis and follow up of diseases was demonstrated with data sets from patients with Alzheimer’s disease, normal pressure hydrocephalus, multiple sclerosis and brain tumors.
