Article
Full-text available
In pediatric acquired brain injury, heterogeneity of functional response to specific rehabilitation treatments is a key confound to medical decisions and outcome prediction. We aimed to identify patient subgroups sharing comparable trajectories, and to implement a method for the early prediction of the long-term recovery course from clinical condit...

In fetal Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Super Resolution Reconstruction (SRR) algorithms are becoming popular tools to obtain high-resolution 3D volume reconstructions from low-resolution stacks of 2D slices, acquired at different orientations. To be effective, these algorithms often require accurate segmentation of the region of interest, such as the...

Synthesising computed tomography (CT) images from magnetic resonance images (MRI) plays an important role in the field of medical image analysis, both for quantification and diagnostic purposes. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have achieved state-of-the-art results in image-to-image translation for brain applications. However, synthesising who...
Thesis
In patients treated with hip arthroplasty, the muscular condition and presence of inflammatory reactions are assessed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). As MRI lacks contrast for bony structures, computed tomography (CT) is preferred for clinical evaluation of bone tissue and orthopaedic surgical planning. Combining the complementary informati...

Chapter
Different pathologies of the vertebral column, such as scoliosis, require quantification of the mobility of individual vertebrae or of curves of the spine for treatment planning. Without the necessary mobility, vertebrae can not be safely re-positioned and fused. The current clinical workflow consists of radiologists or surgeons estimating angular...

Metal artefact reduction (MAR) techniques aim at removing metal-induced noise from clinical images. In Computed Tomography (CT), supervised deep learning approaches have been shown effective but limited in generalisability, as they mostly rely on synthetic data. In Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) instead, no method has yet been introduced to corre...

In this paper, we describe the application of an established block-matching based registration method to the CuRIOUS 2019 MICCAI registration challenge. Directional and symmetric approaches with different parameters are evaluated to select the most suitable setting of this fully automatic and general registration method. The results can be used as...

Background and objective: In patients treated with hip arthroplasty, the muscular condition and presence of inflammatory reactions are assessed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). As MRI lacks contrast for bony structures, computed tomography (CT) is preferred for clinical evaluation of bone tissue and orthopaedic surgical planning. Combining...
Chapter
Attenuation correction is an essential requirement of positron emission tomography (PET) image reconstruction to allow for accurate quantification. However, attenuation correction is particularly challenging for PET-MRI as neither PET nor magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can directly image tissue attenuation properties. MRI-based computed tomograph...
