Charged Fluid Model for Brain Image Segmentation

CFMBIS is a computer-aided tool for 2-D brain image segmentation using an electrostatic charged fluid model. It allows researchers to perform 2-D image segmentation in brain MR image data.

Features

  • Each interactive visualization element corresponding to the embedded function enables the end user to easily manipulate the image data.
  • The visual environment of this tool provides an easy-to-use means of inspection adn interpretation of image data using the LONI jViewbox library.
  • CFMBIS uses the Java Image I/O plug-in architecture to read a wide variety of common medical image file formats.

Description

CFMBIS is a semi-automatic tool that helps researchers to perform 2-D image segmentation in brain MR image data. It requires an initialization stip to start the algorithm. This is performed by clicking an initial point inside the ROI. The program, written in Java, then automatically advances the initial countour(s) toward the boundaries of interest until all fluid elements are stopped at the boundaries of the ROI.
