The aim of this study is using an auto segmentation method based on data clustering to investigate the symmetry of brain SWI in normal subjects and facilitate the quantification of the asymmetric distribution of the deoxygenated vessels in patients with acute ischemic stroke for a better prediction of the evolution. Our preliminary finding demonstrates that the proposed method provides objective information for evaluation of the patients, and may have a potential to contribute to determining the penumbra and predicting of the stroke prognosis, as well as the following treatment.
