34 Gerig, GuidoCortical enhanced tissue segmentation of neonatal brain MR images acquired by a dedicated phased array coilThe acquisition of high quality MR images of neonatal brains is largely hampered by their characteristically small head size and low tissue contrast. As a result, subsequent image processing and analysis, especially for brain tissue segmentation, are often hindered. To overcome this problem, a dedic...2009-01-01
35 Gerig, GuidoTemporal and spatial development of axonal maturation and myelination of white matter in the developing brainBACKGROUND AND PURPOSE-Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been widely used to investigate the development of white matter (WM). However, information about this development in healthy children younger than 2 years of age is lacking, and most previous studies have only measured fractional anisotropy (...2009-01-01
36 Gerig, GuidoBrain volumes in psychotic youth with schizophrenia and mood disordersBackground: We sought to test the hypothesis that deficits in grey matter volume are characteristic of psychotic youth with early-onset schizophrenia-spectrum disorders (EOSS) but not of psychotic youth with early-onset mood disorders (EOMD). Methods: We used magnetic resonance imaging to examine br...2010-01-01
37 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.
