Automated methods on Magnetic Resonance Brain Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis

Doctoral thesis “Automated methods on Magnetic Resonance Brain Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis”   By Eloy Roura Pérez   Supervised by Xavier Lladó Bardera , Arnau Oliver Malagelada   Abstract Nowadays, medical imaging is one of the most important tools for doctors when studying the human body. Given the wide variety of images, the information provided, and the huge amount of research and clinical practice performed around the world, we could say that medical imaging has become a new science. The imaging techniques used depend mainly on the part of the body and the disease studied, in order to better appreciate the…

Onur Ganiler defends his PhD thesis: “Automated detection of new Multiple Sclerosis lesions in longitudinal brain magnetic resonance imaging”

  This thesis deals with the detection of new multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions in longitudinal brain magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. This disease is characterized by the presence of lesions in the brain, predominantly in the white matter (WM) tissue of the brain. The detection and quantification of new lesions are crucial to follow-up MS patients. Moreover, the manual detection of these new lesions is not only time-consuming, but is also prone to intra- and inter-observer variability. Therefore, the development of automated techniques for the detection MS lesions is a major challenge. After a thorough analysis of the state-of-the art in…
