How Analyze was Used
“Segmentation and analysis of all MRI images were conducted using Analyze Pro (Version 1; Mayo Clinic, Biomedical Imaging Resource, AnalyzeDirect, Overland Park, KS, USA) by a single reader. The SCV was segmented using semi-automated and manual segmentation tools and the accuracy of segmentation was confirmed by an experienced radiologist (NS). The vertebral column was used as the reference for the start (C5-C6 disc) and end (T1-T2 disc) of segmentation. A fat mask, generated from the fat-only images, was first applied to the PDFF map at the C7-T1 disc to isolate adipose tissues and exclude background noise from the MRI image.”
