One of my ex-colleagues as a grad student developed a heuristic
algorithm that seemed to be quite effective, which he used as part of
his thesis research:

Bedell, B.J., Narayana, P.A.: Automatic removal of extrameningeal
tissues from MR images of human brain.  J. Magn. Reson. Imag. 6:939-943, 1996.

image registration for human brain.  Magn. Reson. Med., 35:384-390, 1996.
