Automated Segmentation and Connectivity Analysis for Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

Figure 3

Flowchart for CT segmentation and NPH prediction. Segmentation of the CT scan is achieved with a modified 3D UNet. The segmentation result is used to create a Region of Avoidance (ROA) during the computation of the average connectome of normal elderly people. From the computed tractography results, a patient-specific connectivity map is created, and the associated network properties are used in combination with the features from the modified 3D UNet (prediction module) to reach a final prediction of probable NPH.
