BrainImage is an advanced 2D and 3D image processing and analysis program for the Apple Macintosh PowerPC computers that has been developed in our Laboratory over the past several years. The original program design for BrainImage was based on the public domain application, NIH Image.
Although a significant number of advanced features specific to processing and analysis of three-dimensional MRI data have been added to BrainImage as a result of source code additions or modifications to this program by Dr. Reiss and associates, BrainImage retains the original intuitive user-interface and features of NIH Image including built-in procedures and functions that can be accessed with a Pascal-like macro programming language. This affords the end-user the opportunity to rapidly and automatically repeat and/or combine procedures or functions that otherwise would be quite time-consuming if performed manually and sequentially.
Recent work on this software includes the incorporation of several new interactive procedures for 3D MRI quantification including semi-automated procedures for removing non-brain tissues from images, fuzzy segmentation of tissue compartments, global or local parcellation (based on the Talairach atlas), region-growing, etc.
