Shape Analysis of the Hippocampus

Our Objective is to examine hippocampal shape in patients with schizophrenia and healthy controls.


  • Initial hippocampal segmentations of healthy control data were successfully processed at UNC (see average asymmetry as examplary analysis in Fig 2.)
  • Data has been acquired at 1.5T on 20 patients with schizophrenia and 20 healthy controls at Dartmouth.
  • Have begun to apply 3D Slicer for manual segmentation. Additional subject accrual ongoing.
