9 Modeling 4D changes in pathological anatomy using domain adaptation: analysis of TBI imaging using a tumor databaseAnalysis of 4D medical images presenting pathology (i.e., lesions) is significantly challenging due to the presence of complex changes over time. Image analysis methods for 4D images with lesions need to account for changes in brain structures due to deformation, as well as the formation and deletio...2013-01-01
10 Minimum description length with local geometryEstablishing optimal correspondence across object populations is essential to statistical shape analysis. Minimizing the description length (MDL) is a popular method for finding correspondence. In this work, we extend the MDL method by incorporating various local curvature metrics. Using local curva...2008-01-01

12 Modeling 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
13 Normative modeling of early brain maturation from longitudinal DTI reveals twin-singleton differencesEarly brain development of white matter is characterized by rapid organization and structuring. Magnetic Resonance diffusion tensor imaging (MR-DTI) provides the possibility of capturing these changes non-invasively by following individuals longitudinally in order to better understand departures fro...2014-01-01
14 Noise-induced bias in low-direction diffusion tensor MRI: replication of Monte-Carlo simulation with in-vivo scansClinical neuroimaging studies involving diffusion tensor MRI (DTI) require precise estimation of diffusion properties for statistical analysis. Tensor derived measures such as fractional anisotropy (FA) and trace are often analyzed for hypothesis testing. Given the limited scanning time typically av...2007-01-01
15 Patient-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
16 Teasing apart the heterogeneity of autism: Same behavior, different brains in toddlers with fragile X syndrome and autismTo examine brain volumes in substructures associated with the behavioral features of children with FXS compared to children with idiopathic autism and controls.
