Automated Volumetric Skull Segmentation Utilizing Ultra Short Echo Time Magnetic Resonance Imaging for MRgFUS

Samarth Singh
Transcranial Magnetic Resonance guided Focused Ultrasound (tcMRgFUS) is a noninvasive treatment method which involves deposition of sonic energy using ultrasonic beams in the neurocranium region to achieve thermal effects (e.g. tissue ablation, hyperthermia), mechanical effects(e.g. blood-brain barrier permeabilization,clot dissolution, tissue homogenization), and physiological effects (e.g. neuromodulation). The skull, made out of predominantly cancellous and cortical bones, presents itself as an acoustic barrier to this ultrasonic energy. The skull absorbs ultrasound to an extent, heating up...
