The visualization of 3D phenomena and the extraction of quantitative information from magnetic resonance (MR) image data require efficient semiautomated or automated segmentation techniques. The application of multivariate statistical classification to the segmentation of dual-echo volume data of the human head into tissue types is studied. Tests of the radiometric variability of tissue classes within the data volume demonstrate the improvement of the image acquisition technology and the suitability of statistical methods to perform brain tissue segmentation.
