Gyrogenesis is an ontogenic process that transforms the smooth (lissencephalic) cortex toward its mature, convolved (gyrencephalic) state. A tortuous, branching and deepening pattern of sulci and fissures outlines for a well-developed cortex.
The aim of this study is to find an algorithm that can detect the sulci in ultrasound images of fetus' brain and measure the length of it. This algorithm can be used for research demands like learning the development of the brain from embryo stages until the birth of the baby
