                         initial standard procedures in medical image analysis of the human 
                         brain. Several works have investigated the effects of prior 
                         inhomogeneity correction on skull stripping using 1.5 Tesla 
                         magnetic resonance (MR) images, but this question remains 
                         unanswered for higher magnetic fields. This paper fills this gap 
                         using 3 Tesla MR-images, by proposing a novel alternate sequence 
                         of skull stripping, morphological operations, inhomogeneity 
                         correction and intensity standardization, with the first at the 
                         beginning and end of the sequence, denominated Iterative Skull 
                         Stripping methodology. Conversely to what happens in 1.5T images, 
                         experimental evaluation shows that, in 3 Tesla datasets, 
                         inhomogeneity effect plays an important role in stripping the 
                         brain. This observation produces a deep impact on previous and 
                         future studies that rely on skull stripping operation.",
