In semi-automated stroke lesion segmentation based on user defined seed inputs, the location and shape of the input could vary. We developed robust and reproducible semi-automated DWI and PWI lesion segmentation algorithms and evaluated their performance and reproducibility in assessing perfusion-diffusion mismatch in a cohort of acute ischemic stroke patients. Repeated measures ANOVA did not show any statistically significant differences between ground-truth lesion volumes and those obtained using the semi-automated methods (p < 0.05). Mismatch agreement was achieved in 88% of the cases with a kappa (κ) of 0.766.
