Developed and tested on T1 weighted images from OASIS database. Some limited test has been done on T2 weighted images. In some cases, when partial volume artifact is severe, the algorithm does not find the accurate brain boundary. This can be used for most of visualization tasks and applications where accuracy in cortex is not critical.
