Mapping abnormal subcortical brain morphometry in an elderly HIV+ cohort

Benjamin S. C. Wade; Victor G. Valcour; Lauren Wendelken-Riegelhaupt; Pardis Esmaeili-Firidouni; Shantanu H. Joshi; Yalin Wang; Paul M. Thompson 2015 IEEE 12th International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), 2015

Over 50% of HIV+ individuals exhibit neurocognitive impairment and subcortical atrophy, but the pattern of brain abnormalities associated with HIV is still poorly understood. Using parametric surface-based shape analyses, we mapped the 3D profile of subcortical morphometry in 63 HIV+ participants and 31 uninfected controls. The thalamus, corpus striatum, hippocampus, amygdala, brainstem, callosum and ventricles were segmented from brain MRIs. ...


Pulsed atmospheric-pressure cold plasma for endodontic disinfection

Chunqi Jiang; P. Thomas Vernier; Meng-Tse Chen; Yu-Hsuan Wu; Martin A. Gundersen; Leslie L. Wang 2008 IEEE 35th International Conference on Plasma Science, 2008

A non-thermal atmospheric-pressure plasma dental probe is developed to disinfect root canal systems during endodontic treatment. A 100% killing of the test organism Bacillus atrophaeus on nutrient agar plates, 5 mm away from the probe nozzle, with an exposure time of 60 s at an average power 2-3 W for both He and He/(1%)O2, is observed during prelimenary experiment. Results ...


Interactive segmentation for geographic atrophy in retinal fundus images

Noah Lee; R. Theodore Smith; Andrew F. Laine 2008 42nd Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems and Computers, 2008

Fundus auto-fluorescence (FAF) imaging is a non-invasive technique for in vivo ophthalmoscopic inspection of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the most common cause of blindness in developed countries. Geographic atrophy (GA) is an advanced form of AMD and accounts for 12-21% of severe visual loss in this disorder. Automatic quantification of GA is important for determining disease progression and facilitating clinical ...


MRI and PET combined analysis of the medial temporal lobe

Paolo Bosco; Andrea Chincarini; Mario Esposito; Luca Rei; Cèsare Ovando 2011 IEEE International Symposium on Medical Measurements and Applications, 2011

In this work we present a method for the combined analysis of MR and PET images for the early assessment of Alzheimer's disease. This method is fully automatic and can get local structural and functional information from brain scans. By combining functional information with those provided by structural MRI modality, it is possible to improve the ability to discriminate between ...


Quadriceps muscle geometry differs between healthy individuals and those with post-stroke hemiparesis

Kevin G. Pineault; John W. Ramsay; Jill S. Higginson 2012 38th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference (NEBEC), 2012

Muscle force generating capability depends on muscle geometry which may be altered with post-stroke hemiparesis. The objective of this study was to assess the differences in physiological cross-sectional areas and muscle lengths of quadriceps between the paretic and non-paretic sides of post-stroke subjects and subjects unaffected by stroke.
