脑感兴趣区域分割是很多脑疾病计算机辅助分析的重要步骤。然而人类大脑具有复杂的解剖结构,同时脑磁共振(Magnetic Resonance, MR)图像处理通常会面临感兴趣区域灰度对比度低,个体之间和个体内的差异性等问题。为了解决这些问题,近年来,基于多图谱的很多方法被用于脑感兴趣区域的分割。在这篇综述中,我们对一些基于多图谱的脑MR图像分割方法进行系统的介绍,包括常用的配准工具箱,经典的标签融合方法,常用数据集以及多图谱分割在临床研究中的应用。我们认为,将图谱图像的解剖结构先验信息融入端到端的深度学习框架中用于脑图像感兴趣区域分割将是多图谱方法未来一个重要的研究方向。

Brain region-of-interesting (ROI) segmentation is an important prerequisite step for many computer-aid brain disease analyses. However, the human brain has the complicated anatomical structure. Meanwhile, the brain MR images often suffer from the low intensity contrast around the boundary of ROIs, large inter-subject variance and large inner-subject variance. To address these issues, many multi-atlas based segmentation methods are proposed for brain ROI segmentation in the last decade. In this paper, multi-atlas based methods for brain MR image segmentation were reviewed regarding several registration toolboxes which are widely used in the multi-atlas methods, conventional methods for label fusion, datasets that have been used for evaluating the multi-atlas methods, as well as the applications of multi-atlas based segmentation in clinical researches. We propose that incorporating the anatomical prior into the end-to-end deep learning architectures for brain ROI segmentation is an important direction in the future.
