Supplementary Material

Supplementary Table: The statistics of computer-assisted segmentation of cerebral infarct of individual patient after repeating the proposed method for 10 times. The values of meanĀ±standard deviation of each statistical method for individual patient were shown to demonstrate the consistence of results of our proposed algorithm.
