PIANO: Perfusion Imaging via Advection-diffusion

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) image the effect of a contrast agent moving through blood vessels and into …

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 …

Fluid registration between lung CT and stationary chest tomosynthesis images

Registration is widely used in image-guided therapy and image-guided surgery to estimate spatial correspondences between organs of interest between planning and treatment images. However, while high-quality computed tomography (CT) images are often …

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 …

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. …

VoteNet: A Deep Learning Label Fusion Method for Multi-atlas Segmentation

Deep learning (DL) approaches are state-of-the-art for many medical image segmentation tasks. They offer a number of advantages: they can be trained for specific tasks, computations are fast at test time, and segmentation quality is typically high. …

Contextual Additive Networks to Efficiently Boost 3D Image Segmentations

Semantic segmentation for 3D medical images is an important task for medical image analysis which would benefit from more efficient approaches. We propose a 3D segmentation framework of cascaded fully convolutional networks (FCNs) with contextual …

Exploratory Population Analysis with Unbalanced Optimal Transport

The plethora of data from neuroimaging studies provide a rich opportunity to discover effects and generate hypotheses through exploratory data analysis. Brain pathologies often manifest in changes in shape along with deterioration and alteration of …

Multiple Instance Learning for Heterogeneous Images: Training a CNN for Histopathology

Multiple instance (MI) learning with a convolutional neural network enables end-to-end training in the presence of weak image-level labels. We propose a new method for aggregating predictions from smaller regions of the image into an image-level …

Patient-Specific Registration of Pre-operative and Post-recurrence Brain Tumor MRI Scans

Registering brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans containing pathologies is challenging primarily due to large deformations caused by the pathologies, leading to missing correspondences between scans. However, the registration task is …
