Automatic Extra-Axial Cerebrospinal Fluid (Auto EACSF)
Automatic Extra-Axial Cerebrospinal Fluid (Auto EACSF) is an open-source, interactive tool for automatic computation of brain extra-axial cerebrospinal fluid (EA-CSF) in magnetic resonance image (MRI) scans of infants. Elevated extra-axial fluid volume is a possible biomarker for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Auto EACSF aims to automatically calculate the volume of EA-CSF and could therefore be used for early diagnosis of Autism. Auto EACSF is a user-friendly application that generates a Qt application to calculate the volume of EA-CSF. The application is run through a GUI, but also provides an advanced use mode that allows execution of different steps by themselves via Python and XML scripts.
