The detection of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) lesions in Magnetic Resonance (MR) images remains an important issue in medical image processing. Diagnostic criteria for MS based on brain MRI concern mainly dissemination in space and time. In this context, this paper describes a novel region-based approach to automatically count the number of MS lesions present in(More)
This paper presents a longitudinal change detection framework for detecting relevant modifications in diffusion MRI, with application to neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and multiple sclerosis (MS). The core problem is to identify image regions that are significantly different between two scans. The proposed method is based on multivariate statistical testing(More)
Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an inflammatory CNS syndrome distinct from multiple sclerosis (MS) that is associated with serum aquaporin-4 immunoglobulin G antibodies (AQP4-IgG). Prior NMO diagnostic criteria required optic nerve and spinal cord involvement but more restricted or more extensive CNS involvement may occur. The International Panel for NMO(More)
BACKGROUND In order to improve the treatment outcome in multiple sclerosis, it is important to document the factors that influence adherence to therapy. The purpose of this study was to determine patient perceptions and awareness of multiple sclerosis and its treatment, treatment adherence, and impact on quality of life and daily living. METHODS This was(More)
To date, none of the myelin-associated Ag targets definitively discriminates between the immune response observed in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and healthy subjects. However, it has been shown recently that analysis of global immune Ab profiles such as natural autoantibody reactivities can help to distinguish between normal individuals and patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the 5-year risk and to identify risk factors for the development of a seminal acute or progressive clinical event in a multi-national cohort of asymptomatic subjects meeting 2009 RIS Criteria. METHODS Retrospectively identified RIS subjects from 22 databases within 5 countries were evaluated. Time to the first clinical event related to(More)

Antibodies against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) have been identified in a subgroup of pediatric patients with inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) and in some patients with neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD). The aim of this study was to examine the frequency, clinical features, and long-term(More)

Background. Primary Sjögren's syndrome (PSS) is a frequent systemic autoimmune disease. In this study, we aimed to explore the cognitive impairment and the correlations with brain MRI. Methods. Twenty-five patients (mean age 55 ± 11.8 years, 21 females) with PSS were prospectively selected and tested with a French translation of the Brief Repeatable Battery(More)
BACKGROUND CADASIL is an autosomal dominant genetic leukoencephalopathy linked to mutations in the Notch3 gene. In rare cases, widespread brain lesions on T2 MRI mimicking multiple sclerosis are observed. From a national registry of 268 patients with adult-onset leukodystrophy, we identified two patients with an atypical presentation of CADASIL without(More)
Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) makes it possible to probe brain connections in vivo. This paper presents a change detection framework that relies on white matter pathways with application to neuromyelitis optica (NMO). The objective is to detect local or global fiber diffusion property modifications between two longitudinal DW-MRI(More)
