In this paper, a fast, slice-by-slice, nonrigid registration algorithm of dynamic magnetic resonance breast images is presented. The method is based on a multiresolution motion estimation of the breast using complex discrete wavelet transform (CDWT): the pyramid of oriented complex subimages is used to implement a hierarchical phase-matching-based motion(More)
Patients with diffuse pontine gliomas have a median survival of less than one year and represent a challenge for pediatric oncologists, prompting them to attempt experimental therapies. From 1987 to 2005, 62 children with diffuse pontine glioma, not amenable to curative surgery, were treated according to four successive pilot protocols: (1) concomitant(More)
The aim of this work was to develop and validate a 3D female breast deformation model for computer assisted breast surgery. Magnetic resonance (MR) image data of a patient undergoing breast biopsy, were acquired using two different protocols with the patient in prone position: (i) uncompressed breast and (ii) compressed breast, with lateral single breast(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to investigate the growth rate of inherited breast cancer, to analyze its T2 signal intensity besides kinetic and morphologic aspects, and to verify whether there is any correlation between magnetic resonance imaging phenotype and BRCA status. METHODS Between June 2000 and September 2009, we enrolled 227 women(More)
