1 Tumor-induced structural radiometric asymmetry in brain imagesThis paper presents a general framework for analyzing structural and radiometric asymmetry in brain images. In a healthy brain, the left and right hemispheres are largely symmetric across the mid-sagittal plane. Brain tumors may belong to one or both of the following categories: mass-effect, in whic...2001-01-01
2 Multiscale medial shape-based analysis of image objectsMedial representation of a three-dimensional (3-D) object or an ensemble of 3-D objects involves capturing the object interior as a locus of medial atoms, each atom being two vectors of equal length joined at the tail at the medial point. Medial representation has a variety of beneficial properties,...2003-01-01
3 Abnormal vessel tortuosity as a marker of treatment response of malignant gliomas: preliminary reportDespite multiple advances in medical imaging, noninvasive monitoring of therapeutic efficacy for malignant gliomas remains problematic. An underutilized observation is that malignancy induces characteristic abnormalities of vessel shape. These characteristic shape abnormalities affect both capillari...2004-01-01
4 Unbiased diffeomorphic atlas construction for computational anatomyConstruction of population atlases is a key issue in medical image analysis, and particularly in brain mapping. Large sets of images are mapped into a common coordinate system to study intra-population variability and inter-population differences, to provide voxel-wise mapping of functional sites, a...2004-01-01
5 Reduced relationship to cortical white matter volume revealed by Tractography-based segmentation of the corpus callosum in young children with developmental delayObjective: The corpus callosum is the primary anatomical substrate for inter-hemispheric communication, which is important for a range of adaptive and cognitive behaviors in early development.

7 Statistics of populations of images and its embedded objects: driving applications in neuroimagingWork in progress towards modeling shape statistics of multi-object complexes is presented. Constraints defined by the set of objects such as a compact representation of object shape relationships and correlation of shape changes might have advantages for automatic segmentation and group discriminati...2006-01-01
8 Group mean differences of voxel and surface objects via nonlinear averagingBuilding of atlases representing average and variability of a population of images or of segmented objects is a key topic in application areas like brain mapping, deformable object segmentation and object classification. Recent developments in image averaging, i.e. constructing an image which is cen...2006-01-01
9 Closed and open source neuroimage analysis tools and libraries at UNCThe emergence of open-source libraries and development tools in the last decade has changed the process of academic software development in many ways. In medical image processing and visualization this change is especially evident, also because open source projects are actively furthered by grant fu...2006-01-01
10 Images in neuroscience: Fetal and Neonatal Brain DevelopmentIn the top row of longitudinal T1-weighted magnetic resonance images of the same child (and same scale), note the dramatic increase in total brain size as well as in white matter intensity over early development. In the bottom row of diffusion tensor images, white matter tractography of a neonate, o...2006-01-01
11 Discrimination analysis using Multi-object statistics of shape and poseA main focus of statistical shape analysis is the description of variability of a population of geometric objects. In this paper, we present work towards modeling the shape and pose variability of sets of multiple objects. Principal geodesic analysis (PGA) is the extension of the standard technique ...2007-01-01
12 Regional gray matter growth, sexual dimorphism, and cerebral asymmetry in the Neonatal BrainAlthough there has been recent interest in the study of childhood and adolescent brain development, very little is known about normal brain development in the first few months of life. In older children, there are regional differences in cortical gray matter development, whereas cortical gray and wh...2007-01-01
13 Statistical group differences in anatomical shape analysis using Hotelling T2 MetricShape analysis has become of increasing interest to the neuroimaging community due to its potential to precisely locate morphological changes between healthy and pathological structures. This manuscript presents a comprehensive set of tools for the computation of 3D structural statistical shape anal...2007-01-01
14 Statistical shape analysis of Multi-Object complexesAn important goal of statistical shape analysis is the discrimination between populations of objects, exploring group differences in morphology not explained by standard volumetric analysis. Certain applications additionally require analysis of objects in their embedding context by joint statistical...2007-01-01
15 Statistical shape analysis of brain structures using spherical waveletsWe present a novel method of statistical surface-based morphometry based on the use of non-parametric permutation tests and a spherical wavelet (SWC) shape representation.

20 Population-based fitting of medial shape models with correspondence optimizationA crucial problem in statistical shape analysis is establishing the correspondence of shape features across a population.
