The efficacy of the Thalamus Optimized Multi-Atlas Segmentation (THOMAS) algorithm for segmentation of thalamic nuclei with multi-echo MP2RAGE images is studied in 7T. 9 subjects are evaluated on thalamic nuclei delineated on WMn-MPRAGE and ME-MP2RAGE images. We demonstrate that the algorithm performs as well on ME-MP2RAGE as on WMn-MPRAGE images. This indicates that THOMAS can be used on more commonly acquired MP2RAGE for wider use.
