2006-06-01: Note that this page pertains to the "Freesurfer 2001 stable" version. The subsequent 2006 stable version has added a number of advancements, including:
-- improved level of success of the automated steps, reducing manual interventions
-- subcortical region segmentation as a separate branch
-- labeling of cortical surface regions at the end
... however the main surface-finding strategy sketched here is the same.


A diagrammatic overview of the main FreeSurfer process, proceeding generally from top to bottom.
