In this work, we propose a method for segmentation of bones in the head using a single echo zero TE (ZTE) pulse sequence using complex (magnitude and phase) information for efficient segmentation of bone and air regions in the head. We also introduce a histogram-based RF intensity correction method which enables threshold-based segmentation of bone, soft-tissue and air structures. We demonstrate excellent depiction of skull and vertebrae.
