Objective: Semi Automatic Segmentation of the DLPFC.

Progress: We have developed an algorithm for Semi-Automatic Segmentation of the DLPFC based on the rules of Core 3 collaborator, Dr. James Fallon. This algorithm was tested last year in Matlab with successful results. This year, we implemented the algorithm into a 3D SLICER module which works with the current Editor Tab. A screenshot of the module is shown below. The ITK Bayesian Segmentation Filter is currently being incorporated into the module.
