International audience; The atrophy of medial temporal lobe structures is may serve as early biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease. The evaluation of hippocampus (HC) atrophy is estimated by volumetric studies requiring a segmentation step that can be very time consuming when done manually. This limitation can be overcome by using automatic segmentation methods. In this study, we propose to validate our nonlocal patch-based method on the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) database by segmenting the HC of Cognitively Normal (CN) subjects and patients with early Alzheimer's Disease (AD).
