This is an active and ongoing medical image analysis challenge, welcoming new and updated submissions.

Aim

The purpose of this challenge is to directly compare methods for the automatic segmentation of White Matter Hyperintensities (WMH) of presumed vascular origin.

Outline

To participate in the challenge, interested teams can register on this website. After registration, training data can be downloaded. This data consists of 60 sets of brain MR images (T1 and FLAIR) with manual annotations of WMH (binary masks) from three different institutes / scanners. Manual annotations have been made by experts in WMH scoring.

Participants can train their methods on the available data and submit the resulting method for evaluation by the organizers. A brief description (1-2 pages) of the method should be included, that optionally can be submitted for the LNCS post-proceedings. Test data will not be released, but consists of 110 sets of brain MR images from five different scanners (of which three are also in the training data).

MICCAI 2017

The kick-off meeting of this challenge was organized at MICCAI 2017 in Quebec, Canada. Initially, twenty teams participated and presented their method. The challenge remained open and is ongoing since then. These slides were presented during the challenge session at MICCAI 2017.
