Thesis/Project on Segmentation of the Brain from MR Images

KTH, Division of Neuronic Engineering, have a finite element model of the head. However, this model does not contain detailed modeling of the brain. This thesis project consists of finding a method to extract brain tissues from T1-weighted MR images of the head. The method should be automatic to be suitable for patient individual modeling. A summary of the most common segmentation methods is presented and one of the methods is implemented. The implemented method is based on the assumption that the probability density function (pdf) of an MR image can be described by parametric models…

Project on Phase Contrast MRI Measurements:

Phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) is a powerful tool for measuring blood flow and has a wide range of cardiovascular applications. Simulation of PC-MRI from numerical flow data would be useful for addressing the data quality of PC-MRI measurements and to study and understand different artifacts. It would also make it possible to optimize imaging parameters prior to the PC-MRI measurements and to evaluate different methods for measuring wall shear stress.Based on previous studies a PC-MRI simulation tool was developed. An Eulerian-Lagrangian approach was used to solve the problem. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) data calculated on a fix structured mesh (Eulerian point of view) were used as input. From the CFD data spin particle trajectories were computed. The magnetization of the spin particle is then evaluated as the particle travels along its trajectory (Lagrangian point of view).The simulated PC-MRI data were evaluated by comparison with PC-MRI measurements on an in vitro phantom. Results indicate that the PC-MRI simulation tool functions well. However, further development is required to include some of the artifacts. Decreasing the computation time will make more accurate and powerful simulations possible. Several suggestions for improvements are presented in this report.
