A comprehensive methodology for image segmentation is presented. Tools for differential and intensity contouring, and outline optimization are discussed, as well as the methods for automating such procedures. After segmentation, regional volumes and image intensity distributions can be determined. The methodology is applied to nuclear magnetic resonance images of the brain. Examples of the results of volumetric calculations for the cerebral cortex, white matter, cerebellum, ventricular system, and caudate nucleus are presented. An image intensity distribution is demonstrated for the cerebral cortex
