This wiki page describes a procedure for cortical surface reconstruction from ExVivo brain scans.

The procedure is tailored for a particular ExVivo scan protocol used at MGH, which acquires a series of MEF scans for each hemisphere of a postmortem brain sample. The method has only been tested on a few data sets, and further development and improvement is still on the way.

The method contains two major stages. The first stage aims to get a good WM segmentation (with necessary manual editing involved). The second stage performs a multi-spetrcal surface deformation to find the gray/white and pial surfaces.
