Assessment of temporal lobe atrophy from magnetic resonance images is a part of clinical guidelines for the diagnosis of prodromal Alzheimer's disease. As hippocampus is known to be among the first areas affected by the disease, fast and robust definition of hippocampus volume would be of great importance in the clinical decision making. We propose a method(More)
UNLABELLED The spatial normalization of PET amyloid imaging data is challenging because different white and gray matter patterns of negative (Aβ-) and positive (Aβ+) uptake could lead to systematic bias if a standard method is used. In this study, we propose the use of an adaptive template registration method to overcome this problem. METHODS Data from a(More)
BACKGROUND The New National Institute on Aging-Alzheimer's Association diagnostic guidelines for Alzheimer's disease (AD) incorporate biomarkers in the diagnostic criteria and suggest division of biomarkers into two categories: Aβ accumulation and neuronal degeneration or injury. OBJECTIVE It was the aim of this study to compute hippocampus volume from(More)
In this paper we propose a new diagnostic feature for Alzheimer's Disease (AD) which is based on assessment of the degree of inter-hemispheric asymmetry using Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT). The asymmetry measure used represents differences in 3D perfusion image patterns in the cerebral hemispheres. We start from the simplest descriptors(More)
An evaluation of a new similarity criterion for interindividual image registration is presented. The proposed criterion combines intensity and gradient information from the images to achieve a more robust and accurate registration. It builds on a combination of the normalised mutual information (NMI) cost function and a gradient-weighting function,(More)
