Tissue classification to improve tractography.

by JulioVR for Python Software Foundation

Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) is used to create visual representations of the connections of the brain also known as tractography. Research has shown that by using a tissue classifier more accurate representations of the underlying connections are calculated. The goal of this project is to generate tissue classifiers using dMRI or a different MRI modality e.g. T1-weighted MRI (T1). I will implement popular segmentation algorithms using T1 as well as new ones using dMRI data.
