Tools for cortical thickness counting

Hello Neurostars!

Is there any semi-automatic tools for cortical thickness counting? Clinical task is to count cortical thickness for epilsepsy recognition.

Thank you!

FreeSurfer does compute cortical thickness by default if you run the standard recon-all pipeline for a subject. The results are in surf/lh.thickness and surf/rh.thickness. These files give the thickness at each vertex of the reconstructed brain surfaces.

Global statistics (average thickness) are provided in stats/lh.aparc.stats and stats/rh.aparc.stats.
