51 Geodesic 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
52 Geodesic regression of image and shape data for improved modeling of 4D trajectoriesA variety of regression schemes have been proposed on images or shapes, although available methods do not handle them jointly. In this paper, we present a framework for joint image and shape regression which incorporates images as well as anatomical shape information in a consistent manner. Evolutio...2014-01-01
53 Geodesic shape regression in the framework of currentsShape regression is emerging as an important tool for the statistical analysis of time dependent shapes.

54 Graph 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
55 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.

56 Group 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. An anatomical, tract-oriented coordinate system provides a basis for estimating the distribution of diffusion properties.

57 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
58 Image 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
59 Image segmentation with cascaded hierarchical models and logistic disjunctive normal networksContextual information plays an important role in solving vision problems such as image segmentation. However, extracting contextual information and using it in an effective way remains a difficult problem. To address this challenge, we propose a multi-resolution contextual framework, called cascade...2013-01-01
60 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
61 Longitudinal growth modeling of discrete-time functions with application to DTI tract evolution in early neurodevelopmentWe present a new framework for spatiotemporal analysis of parameterized functions attributed by properties of 4D longitudinal image data.

65 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
66 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.
