To improve the efficiency of brain image analysis, we propose a full-automatic method for extracting brain tissue from three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging of T1-weighted data on the human head (brain tissue extraction method using erosion-dilation treatment [BREED]). The extraction processing is realized by combining signal intensity thresholding by means of the discriminant analysis method and an erosion-dilation treatment of the image. The accuracy of BREED is evaluated using both simulated and subject data. BREED can extract brain tissues with high accuracy (approximately 97%) for either simulated or subject data.
