pincram

Brain extraction using label propagation and group agreement.

Pincram takes as input

  • a target image -- T1-weighted 3D magnetic resonance (MR) volume of the human brain in NIfTI format

  • an atlas database consisting of reference MR images and corresponding binary segmentations (total brain volume masks and intracranial volume masks).

It produces

  • a total brain volume mask (parenchyma plus internal cerebrospinal fluid)

  • an intracranial volume mask that fully contains the former

  • a probabilistic segmentation of the total brain

corresponding to the target image.

Pincram works with xargs or PBS to parallelize the atlas-target registrations.
