Discovering Hidden Physics Behind Transport Dynamics

Transport processes are ubiquitous. They are, for example, at the heart of optical flow approaches; or of perfusion imaging, where blood transport is assessed, most commonly by injecting a tracer. An advection-diffusion equation is widely used to …

Perfusion Imaging: A Data Assimilation Approach

Perfusion imaging (PI) is clinically used to assess strokes and brain tumors. Commonly used PI approaches based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) measure the effect of a contrast agent moving through blood vessels and …

A Deep Network for Joint Registration and Reconstruction of Images with Pathologies

Registration of images with pathologies is challenging due to tissue appearance changes and missing correspondences caused by the pathologies. Moreover, mass effects as observed for brain tumors may displace tissue, creating larger deformations over …

Anatomical Data Augmentation via Fluid-based Image Registration

We introduce a fluid-based image augmentation method for medical image analysis. In contrast to existing methods, our framework generates anatomically meaningful images via interpolation from the geodesic subspace underlying given samples. Our …

Spatial Component Analysis to Mitigate Multiple Testing in Voxel-Based Analysis

Voxel-based analysis provides a simple, easy to interpret approach to discover regions correlated with a variable of interest such as for example a pathology indicator. Voxel-based analysis methods perform a statistical test at each voxel and are …

VoteNet++: Registration Refinement for Multi-Atlas Segmentation

Multi-atlas segmentation (MAS) is a popular image segmen- tation technique for medical images. In this work, we improve the performance of MAS by correcting registration errors be- fore label fusion. Specifically, we use a volumetric displace- ment …

Votenet+: An Improved Deep Learning Label Fusion Method for Multi-Atlas Segmentation

In this work, we improve the performance of multi-atlas segmentation (MAS) by integrating the recently proposed VoteNet model with the joint label fusion (JLF) approach. Specifically, we first illustrate that using a deep convolutional neural network …

DeepAtlas: Joint Semi-supervised Learning of Image Registration and Segmentation

Deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are state-of-theart for semantic image segmentation, but typically require many labeled training samples. Obtaining 3D segmentations of medical images for supervised training is difficult and labor intensive. …

Fast predictive simple geodesic regression

Deformable image registration and regression are important tasks in medical image analysis. However, they are computationally expensive, especially when analyzing large-scale datasets that contain thousands of images. Hence, cluster computing is …

Metric Learning for Image Registration

Image registration is a key technique in medical image analysis to estimate deformations between image pairs. A good deformation model is important for high-quality estimates. However, most existing approaches use ad-hoc deformation models chosen for …
