Disclosed is a method for atlas reduction in multi-atlas label fusion that exploits similarity of three-dimensional (3D) data by dividing 3D data into two-dimensional (2D) slices. The proposed method improves accuracy for a given number of atlases and reduces computation time compared to multi-atlas label fusion using 3D atlases.
