1 Macleod, Robert S.Sensitivity of epicardial electrical markers to acute ischemia detectionIntroduction: We hypothesize that electrocardiographic measurements from the intramyocardial space contain more sensitive markers of ischemia than those detectable on the epicardium. The goal of this study was to evaluate different electrical markers for their potential to detect the earliest phases...2014-01-01
2 Meyer, Miriah DawnDesign activity framework for visualization designAn important aspect in visualization design is the connection between what a designer does and the decisions the designer makes. Existing design process models, however, do not explicitly link back to models for visualization design decisions. We bridge this gap by introducing the design activity fr...2014-01-01
3 Gerig, GuidoModeling longitudinal MRI changes in populations using a localized, information-theoretic measure of contrastLongitudinal MR imaging during early brain development provides important information about growth patterns and the development of neurological disorders. We propose a new framework for studying brain growth patterns within and across populations based on MRI contrast changes, measured at each time ...2013-01-01
4 Gerig, GuidoSpatiotemporal modeling of distribution-valued data applied to DTI tract evolution in infant neurodevelopmentThis paper proposes a novel method that extends spatiotemporal growth modeling to distribution-valued data. The method relaxes assumptions on the underlying noise models by considering the data to be represented by the complete probability distributions rather than a representative, single-valued su...2013-01-01
5 Solomon, Douglas KipEvaluating the use of strontium isotopes in tree rings to record the isotopic signal of dust deposited on the Wasatch MountainsDust cycling from the Great Basin to the Rocky Mountains is an important component of ecological and hydrological processes. We investigated the use of strontium (Sr) concentrations and isotope ratios (87Sr/86Sr) in tree rings as a proxy for dust deposition. We report Sr concentrations and isotope r...2014-01-01
6 Gerig, GuidoAnalyzing imaging biomarkers for traumatic brain injury using 4D modeling of longitudinal MRIQuantitative imaging biomarkers are important for assessment of impact, recovery and treatment efficacy in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). To our knowledge, the identification of such biomarkers characterizing disease progress and recovery has been insufficiently explored in TBI due to d...2013-01-01
7 Gerig, GuidoBuilding spatiotemporal anatomical models using joint 4-D segmentation, registration, and subject-specific atlas estimationLongitudinal analysis of anatomical changes is a vital component in many personalized-medicine applications for predicting disease onset, determining growth/atrophy patterns, evaluating disease progression, and monitoring recovery. Estimating anatomical changes in longitudinal studies, especially th...2012-01-01
8 Gerig, GuidoLongitudinal growth modeling of discrete-time functions with application to DTI tract evolution in early neurodevelopmentWe present a new framework for spatiotemporal analysis of parameterized functions attributed by properties of 4D longitudinal image data. Our driving application is the measurement of temporal change in white matter diffusivity of fiber tracts. A smooth temporal modeling of change from a discrete-ti...2012-01-01
9 Gerig, GuidoA framework for longitudinal data analysis via shape regressionTraditional longitudinal analysis begins by extracting desired clinical measurements, such as volume or head circumference, from discrete imaging data. Typically, the continuous evolution of a scalar measurement is estimated by choosing a 1D regression model, such as kernel regression or fitting a p...2012-01-01
10 Rondina, Matthew ThomasEmerging evidence for platelets as immune and inflammatory effector cellsWhile traditionally recognized for their roles in hemostatic pathways, emerging evidence demonstrates that platelets have previously unrecognized, dynamic roles that span the immune continuum. These newly recognized platelet functions, including the secretion of immune mediators, interactions with e...2014-01-01
11 Gerig, GuidoPatient-tailored connectomics visualization for the assessment of white matter atrophy in traumatic brain injuryAvailable approaches to the investigation of traumatic brain injury (TBI) are frequently hampered, to some extent, by the unsatisfactory abilities of existing methodologies to efficiently define and represent affected structural connectivity and functional mechanisms underlying TI-related pathology....2012-01-01
12 Gerig, GuidoMeasures for validation of DTI tractographyThe evaluation of analysis methods for diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) remains challenging due to the lack of gold standards and validation frameworks. Significant work remains in developing metrics for comparing fiber bundles generated from streamline tractography. We propose a set of volumetric and...2012-01-01
