Abstract We have proposed an automated method for three-dimensional (3D) measurement of cerebral cortical thicknesses based on fuzzy membership maps derived from magnetic resonance (MR) images for evaluation of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The cerebral cortical thickness was three-dimensionally measured on each cortical surface voxel by using a localized gradient vector trajectory in a fuzzy membership map. The proposed method could be useful for the 3D measurement of the cerebral cortical thickness on individual cortical surface voxels as an atrophy feature in AD.
