The memory deficits associated with Alzheimer's disease result to a great extent from hippocampal network dysfunction. The coordination of this network relies on theta (symbol) oscillations generated in the medial septum. Here, we investigated in rats the impact of hippocampal amyloid beta (Abeta) injections on the physiological and cognitive functions that(More)
A statistical methodology is proposed to rank several estimation methods of a relevant clinical parameter when no gold standard is available. Based on a regression without truth method, the proposed approach was applied to rank eight methods without using any a priori information regarding the reliability of each method and its degree of automation. It was(More)
A fully automated segmentation method of the left ventricle from short-axis cardiac MR images is proposed and evaluated. The segmentation is based on morphological filtering and gradient vector flow snake for which an automatic setting of parameters has already been proposed. The present work focuses on the automatic detection of a region of interest (ROI)(More)
This work aimed at combining different segmentation approaches to produce a robust and accurate segmentation result. Three to five segmentation results of the left ventricle were combined using the STAPLE algorithm and the reliability of the resulting segmentation was evaluated in comparison with the result of each individual segmentation method. This(More)
The memory deficits associated with Alzheimer's disease result to a great extent from hippocampal network dysfunction. The coordination of this network relies on theta (␪) oscillations generated in the medial septum. Here, we investigated in rats the impact of hippocam-pal amyloid ␤ (A␤) injections on the physiological and cognitive functions that depend on(More)
In Alzheimer's disease, amyloid beta peptide (Aβ) accumulation is associated with hippocampal network dysfunction. Intrahippocampal injections of Aβ induce aberrant inhibitory septohippocampal (SH) network activity in vivo and impairment of memory processing. In the present study, we observed, after hippocampal Aβ treatment, a selective loss of neurons(More)
This paper proposes a new strategy to optimize the coregistration of Technetium-99m Sestamibi SPECT and MRI data in case of patients with high grade glioma. It consists in a personalized approach which selects, for each data set, the best registration method among several ones. To achieve this selection, a quantitative dedicated evaluation criterion based(More)
A method for reconstructing magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) volumes from successive acquisitions is described. The method is based on double oblique acquisitions of highly anisotropic MRA volumes, each of which corresponds to reduced k-space filling. These partial k-spaces are then combined to obtain a 3D k-space adapted to the frequency spread of the(More)
