Module Description

This extension contains multiple CLI modules for segmenting white matter lesions in sMRI data. In order to use these tools your data must include a T1, T2, FLAIR, and brain mask for each subject. All data must be preprocessed including intra-subject co-registration, AC-PC alignment, bias correction, consistent spacing between sequences, and brain mask creation. If you are training a new model then expert lesion segmentations (co-registered to the anatomical scans for the relevant subject) are also required.

Use Cases

  1. Training a new model.
  1. Segmenting Lesions based on an existing model.
