An automated method for analysing hippocampal volumes

Takeaway

  • A newly-developed method for the automatic segmentation of hippocampal volumes is highly reliable and comparable with results obtained from a manual segmentation technique.

Why this matters

  • The identification of people who have or are progressing towards Alzheimer’s disease is critical for effectively managing the disease, and imaging hippocampal atrophy via more efficient methods of hippocampal segmentation is crucial.
