ASHS is a software package for automatic segmentation of hippocampal subfields in MRI scans. ASHS requires a T1-weighted scan and an oblique coronal T2-weighted scan with high in-plane resolution. ASHS will automatically label main hippocampal subfields and medial temporal lobe subregions. ASHS is easy to train for other brain segmentation applications as well.

A developer of a tool or resource distributed under the GPL ensures that users of the tool and of modified versions of the tool may always inspect the source code and modify the source to suit their needs, and that users may modify the tool as they see fit without being obliged to distribute their changes. While this may seem to encourage multiple versions of the same tool, the result is often that changes are passed back to the tool originator and incorporated into the original tool.
