82 Gerig, GuidoTumor-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
83 Gerig, GuidoMultiscale 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
84 Gerig, GuidoAnalysis of longitudinal shape variability via subject specific growth modelingStatistical analysis of longitudinal imaging data is crucial for understanding normal anatomical development as well as disease progression. This fundamental task is challenging due to the difficulty in modeling longitudinal changes, such as growth, and comparing changes across different populations...2012-01-01

86 Taylor, MarkUnderstanding the community based participatory research (CBPR) approach: case study in GhanaIn 2003, the University of Utah, in cooperation with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), the Atwima Nwabiagya District Assembly and Barekuma community leaders, formed what is known as the Barekuma Collaborative Community Development Proj...2011-12-01
87 Gerig, GuidoStructural integrity of the uncinate fasciculus in geriatric depression: relationship with age of onsetBackground: The uncinate fasciculus connects limbic structures, such as the hippocampus and amygdala, with frontal regions. This study utilized diffusion tensor imaging to examine the structural integrity of the uncinate fasciculus in late-life depression. Method: 18 elderly depressed and 19 elderly...2007-01-01
88 Gerig, GuidoBrain maturation of newborns and infantsRecently, imaging studies of early human development have received more attention, as improved modeling methods might lead to a clearer understanding of the origin, timing, and nature of differences in neurodevelopmental disorders. Non-invasivemagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide three-dimen...2011-01-01
89 Gerig, GuidoEstimation of smooth growth trajectories with controlled acceleration from time series shape dataLongitudinal shape analysis often relies on the estimation of a realistic continuous growth scenario from data sparsely distributed in time. In this paper, we propose a new type of growth model para-meterized by acceleration, whereas standard methods typically control the velocity. This mimics the b...2011-01-01
90 Gerig, GuidoPrenatal mild ventriculomegaly predicts abnormal development of the neonatal brainBackground: Many psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders are associated with mild enlargement of the lateral ventricles thought to have origins in prenatal brain development. Little is known about development of the lateral ventricles and the relationship of prenatal lateral ventricle enlargeme...2008-01-01
91 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

93 Macleod, Robert S.Sensitivity of epicardial electrical markers to acute ischemia detectionIntroduction: We hypothesize that electrocardiographic measurements from the intramyocardial space contain more sensitive markers of ischemia than those detectable on the epicardium. The goal of this study was to evaluate different electrical markers for their potential to detect the earliest phases...2014-01-01
94 Meyer, Miriah DawnDesign activity framework for visualization designAn important aspect in visualization design is the connection between what a designer does and the decisions the designer makes. Existing design process models, however, do not explicitly link back to models for visualization design decisions. We bridge this gap by introducing the design activity fr...2014-01-01

96 Gerig, GuidoSpatiotemporal modeling of distribution-valued data applied to DTI tract evolution in infant neurodevelopmentThis paper proposes a novel method that extends spatiotemporal growth modeling to distribution-valued data.
