Although Electroencephalography (EEG) source localization is being widely used in adults, this promising technique has not yet been applied to newborns because of technical difficulties, such as lack of data concerning the newborn skull conductivity, thickness, and homogeneity. Using a new type of EEG headcap molded on each baby's head, we aimed to(More)
Commonly used brain templates are based on adults' or children's brains. In this study, we create a neonatal brain template. This becomes necessary because of the pronounced differences not only in size but even more importantly in geometrical proportions of the brains of adults and children as compared to the ones of newborns. The template is created based(More)
OBJECTIVE Phase Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (PCMRI) is a noninvasive technique that can be used to quantify variations of flow during the cardiac cycle. PCMRI allows investigations of blood flow dynamics in the main arteries and veins of the brain but also the dynamics of cerebrospinal fluid. These cerebral flow investigations provide a description(More)
BACKGROUND Phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) enables quantification of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow and total cerebral blood (tCBF) flow and may be of value for the etiological diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases. This investigation aimed to study CSF flow and intracerebral vascular flow in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and(More)
MR functional imaging, due to the improvement in ultra-speed imaging technology such as echo-planar imaging, has become a very powerful technique since the beginning of the nineties. This imaging technique is divided into diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging and cerebral activation. Diffusion imaging probes the mobility of water molecules characterized by a(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Patients with aqueductal stenosis (AS) present with various clinical and radiologic features. Conventional MR imaging provides useful information in AS but depends on a subjective evaluation by the neuroradiologist. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the support of the phase-contrast MR imaging (PC-MR imaging) technique(More)
Inappropriate results may be produced if one uses adult or pediatric atlases for evaluation of neonatal cerebral images for morphological studies. This is mainly due to anatomical particularities typical for this early stage of development. In this paper, we describe the construction of a digital neonatal brain atlas from a set of images of neonates aged(More)
This paper presents the design and construction of a 3D digital neonatal neurocranial phantom and its application for the simulation of brain magnetic resonance (MR) images. Commonly used digital brain phantoms (e.g. BrainWeb) are based on the adult brain. With the growing interest in computer-aided methods for neonatal MR image processing, there is a(More)
INTRODUCTION The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) plays a major role in the physiology of the central nervous system. The continuous turnover of CSF is mainly attributed to the highly vascularized choroid plexus (CP) located in the cerebral ventricles which represent a complex interface between blood and CSF. We propose a method for evaluating CP functionality in(More)
