Using machine learning for outcome prediction of patients with severe head injury

Proceedings of Computer Based Medical Systems, 1997

The paper presents an application of decision tree induction to the problem of the prediction of outcome after a severe head injury. The study shows that induced decision trees are useful for the analysis of the importance of clinical parameters and of their combinations for the evaluation of the severity of brain injury and for outcome prediction.


The visual system as a proxy for evaluation of brain function

2016 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC), 2016

While we recognize additional studies are needed to confirm repeatability and reliability in detecting normative and pathologic values, our methodology is an important step in demonstrating quantifiable measurements of the visual system as an indirect measurement of brain function.


Time dependent entropy analysis of multiunit activity in the cortex following the hypoxic-ischemic brain injury

First International IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering, 2003. Conference Proceedings., 2003

Previous study has shown that the scalp electrical activity (e.g. EEG) could provide information on hypoxic-ischemic (HI) brain injury. The time dependent entropy (TDE) of EEG was applied as a means to segment the injury and recovery phases. A reduction in entropy during the injury was explained as the result of the spiking or bursting activity during the recovery of ...


Symmetry-Based Analysis of Diffusion MRI for the Detection of Brain Impairments

2018 25th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP), 2018

We present a novel computational approach to detect white-matter brain impairments following stroke or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). A key assumption in our study is that the two hemispheres are not affected identically. The pathology of white matter (WM) tracts can be thus identified according to the asymmetry level of brain diffusivity measures, such as Fractional Anisotropy (FA) and Mean ...


A model of the dynamics of intracranial pressure during conditions of intact and loss of cerebral vascular tone

Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

A mathematical model has been developed to simulate the dynamics of intracranial pressure and cerebral blood flow. This model is based on the hypothesis that during the condition of normal vascular tone a major component of venous blood flow into the superior sagittal sinus is reduced during positive pressure inhalation. In contrast, during loss of vascular tone and massive vasodilation, ...

The time dependent entropy (TDE) of EEG was applied as a means to segment the injury and recovery phases. A reduction in entropy during the injury was explained as the result of the spiking or bursting activity during the recovery of HI injury. The aim of this study is to investigate the spiking activity in the cortex during (HI) brain injury. The multiunit activity recorded from the cortex (CTX MUA) is analyzed with TDE methods. The spike sensitive TDE tracks the electric activity at the cellular level. The CTX MUA has high TDE value after the HI injury, which gradually returns to the baseline level as the brain recovers. This is the first report of cellular electrical response to global ischemic injury.

  • Symmetry-Based Analysis of Diffusion MRI for the Detection of Brain Impairments

    We present a novel computational approach to detect white-matter brain impairments following stroke or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). A key assumption in our study is that the two hemispheres are not affected identically. The pathology of white matter (WM) tracts can be thus identified according to the asymmetry level of brain diffusivity measures, such as Fractional Anisotropy (FA) and Mean Diffusivity (MD), extracted from Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI). The proposed methodological contribution is based on the construction of a sequence of isosurfaces of these scalar measures and their symmetrical counterparts, obtained by reflecting the original isosurfaces. The modified Hausdorff distance is then used to measure the dissimilarity between each corresponding pair of aligned surfaces. The proposed method is assessed using datasets of normal controls (NCs), stroke patients and longitudinal brain scans of football players that might have been exposed to mild head traumas. Increased asymmetry with respect to NCs is shown for the stroke patients and some of the players indicating possible WM injuries.

  • A model of the dynamics of intracranial pressure during conditions of intact and loss of cerebral vascular tone

    A mathematical model has been developed to simulate the dynamics of intracranial pressure and cerebral blood flow. This model is based on the hypothesis that during the condition of normal vascular tone a major component of venous blood flow into the superior sagittal sinus is reduced during positive pressure inhalation. In contrast, during loss of vascular tone and massive vasodilation, venous blood flow is not markedly reduced during positive pressure inhalation. A non-linear resistance was used to simulate the pressure dependent behavior of both the resistance of bridging veins into the lateral lacuna and resistance of elements of chordae Willisii along the walls of the sagittal sinus. All parameters of the model were obtained from previously published values or direct calculation using available physiological data and analog simulation. A comparison between the experimentally recorded and simulated intracranial pressure signals demonstrates the possible validity of the model.

  • Intracranial Pressure Variation Associated with Changes in End-Tidal CO2

    Maintaining intracranial pressure (ICP) below 20-25 mmHg is an important clinical goal in the treatment of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is well known that the partial pressure of arterial CO<sub>2</sub> (PaCO<sub>2</sub>) can affect cerebral blood flow, cerebral blood volume, and therefore ICP. The end-tidal CO<sub>2 </sub> (ETCO<sub>2</sub>) is usually monitored by clinicians as a proxy for PaCO<sub>2</sub>. We show examples where subclinical fluctuations in ETCO<sub>2</sub> are associated with clinically significant fluctuations in ICR We estimated ICP from past and present values of ETCO<sub>2</sub> with a linear estimator. The variance of the ICP residuals was 37 percent of the variance of the ICP signal at frequencies above 0.33 mHz. We suggest that a large proportion of clinically significant ICP fluctuations could be eliminated or reduced if the patients ventilation and CO<sub>2</sub> levels were more tightly regulated

  • Dynamics modelling in brain circulation

    Two different measurement modalities, one related to blood flow, the other related to brain metabolism are monitored in a head injury patient and analyzed by using the method of surrogate data. That is applied against a hierarchy of two-dimensional Markov processes, designed to model a possible deterministic behaviour of the system and correlations between the two observed variables. Two-layered feedforward neural networks are trained to estimate the two-dimensional conditional densities of the proposed Markov models. A cumulant based information flow is here used for testing the observed dynamics against the hierarchy of null hypotheses. A deterministic dynamics corresponding to a low order Markov process was found in both time series. In addition some correlation was detected indicating a coupling of the blood flow and the metabolism related parameters depending on patient condition. The proposed method could be a useful tool for detecting malfunction in the regulation of the human basic metabolism and predicting its evolution inside a reasonable window time.

  • Nonadditive information theory for the analysis of brain rhythms

    In this paper, we introduce Nonadditive Information Theory through the axiomatic formulation of Tsallis entropy. We show that systems with transitions from high dimensionality to few degrees of freedom are better described by nonadditive formalism. Such a biological system is the brain and brain rhythms is its macroscopic dynamic trace. We will show with simulations that Tsallis entropy is a powerful information measure, and we present results of brain dynamics analyzed using EEG recordings from a brain injury model.

  • Forward and backward autoregressive modeling of EEG

    Causal autoregressive (forward prediction) process is the most popular model used to parameterize an EEG segment. In this paper, we attempt to increase the modeling accuracy by removing the causality constraint. Two important observations can be made from the analysis of a set of EEG data collected during an animal experiment with induced brain injury. It was found that the residual error decreases when a forward and backward prediction model is used. The amount of the residual error decrease is minimal for those segments of the EEG data corresponding to severe brain injury.

  • Outcomes of intervention programs using flatscreen virtual reality

    Virtual reality (VR) has the potential to offer experiences which are engaging and rewarding. In VR, the focus is shifted from the person's efforts in producing a movement or completing a task to that of interaction with the virtual environment. We have found that participants place value and meaning on and enjoy the activities programmed. Virtual reality interventions have been shown to improve cognitive function and concentration through an individual's interaction with a pleasant activity. Importantly, the enjoyment experienced while working with VR may increase the level of participation. In addition to generating realistic situations for testing, intervention and collection of data, the provision of immediate and positive feedback through VR has been shown to increase self esteem and empowerment. We will report outcomes from several intervention and feasibility trials using a flat screen virtual reality system with survivors of traumatic brain injury, community living older adults and children with spastic cerebral palsy. Gross motor movements were elicited through various game-like VR applications without the need for head-mounted displays or other peripherals. The impact of VR exercise participation ranged from improvements in clinical measures of functional balance and mobility, time on task, as well as participant and care provider perceptions of enjoyment, independence and confidence. Although still preliminary, our data suggest that simple applications of virtual reality have significant impacts on physical and psychosocial variables. Possibilities for and benefits of home and community-based access to virtual reality based programs will be explored.
