How Analyze was Used
“CE-L were manually outlined by the same two neuroradiologists by consensus on T1w-MPRAGE images after contrast using the segmentation software Analyze 11.0 (AnalyzeDirect, Inc. KS, USA). In case a lesion showed a ringlike enhancement pattern, only parts of the lesion that were within the ring enhancement were segmented. In case a lesion showed a nodular enhancement pattern, only the nodular enhancing parts were segmented. The resulting CE-L masks of both raters were binarized and patient-wise multiplied to obtain a consensus mask.”
