1 Solomon, Douglas KipBayesian evaluation of groundwater age distribution using radioactive tracers and anthropogenic chemicalsThe development of a Bayesian modeling approach for estimation of the age distribution of groundwater using radioactive isotopes and anthropogenic chemicals is described. The model considers the uncertainties associated with the measured tracer concentrations as well as the parameters affecting the ...2012-01-01
2 Wunderlich, Adam JamesOn efficient assessment of image-quality metrics based on linear model observersThis paper is motivated by the problem of image-quality assessment using model observers for the purpose of development and optimization of medical imaging systems.

3 Gerig, GuidoConstrained data decomposition and regression for analyzing healthy aging from fiber tract diffusion propertiesIt has been shown that brain structures in normal aging undergo significant changes attributed to neurodevelopmental and neurodegeneration processes as a lifelong, dynamic process. Modeling changes in healthy aging will be necessary to explain differences to neurodegenerative patterns observed in m...2009-01-01
4 Gerig, GuidoGroup statistics of DTI fiber bundles using spatial functions of tensor measuresWe present a framework for hypothesis testing of differences between groups of DTI ber tracts.

5 Gerig, GuidoImage registration driven by combined probabilistic and geometric descriptorsDeformable image registration in the presence of considerable contrast dierences and large-scale size and shape changes represents a signicant challenge for image registration. A representative driving application is the study of early brain development in neuroimaging, which requires co-registratio...2010-01-01
6 Gerig, GuidoEarly postnatal development of corpus callosum and corticospinal white matter assessed with quantitative tractographyBACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The early postnatal period is perhaps the most dynamic phase of white matter development. We hypothesized that the early postnatal development of the corpus callosum and corticospinal tracts could be studied in unsedated healthy neonates by using novel approaches to diffusion...2007-01-01
7 Gerig, GuidoAssessment of reliability of multi-site neuroimaging via traveling phantom studyThis paper describes a framework for quantitative analysis of neuroimaging data of traveling human phantoms used for cross-site validation.

8 Gerig, GuidoFunctional connectivity MR imaging reveals cortical functional connectivity in the developing brainBACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Unlike conventional functional MR imaging where external sensory/cognitive paradigms are needed to specifically activate different regions of the brain, resting functional connectivity MR imaging acquires images in the absence of cognitive demands (a resting condition) and de...2008-01-01
9 Gerig, GuidoDiscordance of prenatal and neonatal brain development in twinsBackground: Discordance of birth weight has been observed in twin pairs, though little is known about prenatal and early neonatal discordance of head and brain size, and the role that zygosity and chorionicity play in discordances of early brain development in twins. Aims: To compare prenatal and ne...2009-01-01
10 Gerig, GuidoAbnormal 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
11 Gerig, GuidoPopulation-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. While many solutions are easy to express using boundary representations, this has been a considerable challenge for medial representations. This paper uses a new 3-D medial model...2007-01-01
12 Gerig, GuidoImages 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.

13 Gerig, GuidoSubcortical structure segmentation using probabilistic atlas priorsThe segmentation of the subcortical structures of the brain is required for many forms of quantitative neuroanatomic analysis. The volumetric and shape parameters of structures such as caudate are employed to characterize a disease or its evolution. This paper presents our fully automatic segmentati...2007-01-01
14 Gerig, GuidoNoise-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 Gerig, GuidoUnbiased 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
16 Gur, YanivGraph diffusion distance: a difference measure for weighted graphs based on the graph Laplacian exponential kernelWe propose a novel difference metric, called the graph diffusion distance (GDD), for quantifying the difference between two weighted graphs with the same number of vertices. Our approach is based on measuring the average similarity of heat diffusion on each graph. We compute the graph Laplacian expo...2013-01-01
17 Macleod, Robert S.Identification and acute targeting of gaps in atrial ablation lesion sets using a real-time magnetic resonance imaging systemBackground-Radiofrequency ablation is routinely used to treat cardiac arrhythmias, but gaps remain in ablation lesion sets because there is no direct visualization of ablation-related changes. In this study, we acutely identify and target gaps using a real-time magnetic resonance imaging (RT-MRI) sy...2012-01-01
18 Seyedhosseini Tarzjani, Seyed MojtabaImage segmentation with cascaded hierarchical models and logistic disjunctive normal networksContextual information plays an important role in solving vision problems such as image segmentation.
