31 Gerig, GuidoCharacterizing growth patterns in longitudinal MRI using image contrastUnderstanding the growth patterns of the early brain is crucial to the study of neuro-development. In the early stages of brain growth, a rapid sequence of biophysical and chemical processes take place. A crucial component of these processes, known as myelination, consists of the formation of a myel...2014-01-01
32 Sanderson, Allen ReedAn alternative formulation of lyapunov exponents for computing lagrangian coherent structuresLagrangian coherent structures are time-evolving surfaces that highlight areas in flow fields where neighboring advected particles diverge or converge. The detection and understanding of such structures is an important part of many applications such as in oceanography where there is a need to predic...2014-01-01
33 Anderson, Erik WesleyDiscovering and visualizing patterns in EEG dataBrain activity data is often collected through the use of electroen-cephalography (EEG). In this data acquisition modality, the electric fields generated by neurons are measured at the scalp. Although this technology is capable of measuring activity from a group of neurons, recent efforts provide ev...2013-01-01

Patients and Methods: In 15 patients with cam femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and 15 controls, alpha angles were measured by two observers using radial CT (0º, 30º, 60º,...2014-01-01
35 Gerig, GuidoMulti-atlas segmentation of subcortical brain structures via the AutoSeg software pipelineAutomated segmenting and labeling of individual brain anatomical regions, in MRI are challenging, due to the issue of individual structural variability. Although atlas-based segmentation has show its potential for both tissue and structure segmentation, due to the inherent natural variability as wel...2014-01-01
36 Farrell, Timothy W.Organizational culture associated with provider satisfactionBackground: Organizational culture is key to the successful implementation of major improvement strategies. Transformation to a patient-centered medical home (PCHM) is such an improvement strategy, requiring a shift from provider-centric care to team-based care. Because this shift may impact provide...2014-01-01
37 Gerig, GuidoGeodesic image regression with a sparse parameterization of diffeomorphismsImage regression allows for time-discrete imaging data to be modeled continuously, and is a crucial tool for conducting statistical analysis on longitudinal images. Geodesic models are particularly well suited for statistical analysis, as image evolution is fully characterized by a baseline image an...2013-01-01
38 Gerig, Guido4D modeling of infant brain growth in Down's Syndrome and controls from longitudinal MRIModeling of early brain growth trajectories from longitudinal MRI will provide new insight into neurodevelopmental characteristics, timing and type of changes in neurological disorders from controls. In addition to an ongoing large-scale infant autism neuroimaging study 1, we recruited 4 infants wit...2014-01-01
39 Gerig, GuidoMultivariate Modeling of longitudinal MRI in early brain development with confidence measuresThe human brain undergoes rapid organization and structuring early in life. Longitudinal imaging enables the study of these changes over a developmental period within individuals through estimation of population growth trajectory and its variability. In this paper, we focus on maturation of white an...2013-01-01
