Abstract

Computational anatomy covers a broad class of mathematical methods that model anatomical structures in images as three-dimensional curves, surfaces and volumes, and combine them across subjects to create statistical maps of structural differences among brains. The methods described here are cortical thickness mapping, time-lapse, tensor-based morphometry, and hippocampal radial mapping.
