RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based texture analysis has been shown to be effective in classifying multiple sclerosis lesions. Regarding the clinical use of texture analysis in multiple sclerosis, our intention was to show which parts of the analysis are sensitive to slight changes in textural data acquisition and which steps(More)
Recent healthcare policies have influenced the manner in which patient data is handled in research projects, and the regulations concerning protected health information have become significantly tighter. Thus, new procedures are needed to facilitate research while protecting the confidentiality of patient data and ensuring the integrity of clinical work in(More)
BACKGROUND This paper addresses two subtypes of multiple sclerosis (MS), primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). The separation of PPMS and RRMS is challenging in certain cases. PURPOSE To quantitatively determine MS subtypes using texture analysis (TA) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). MATERIAL(More)
