In vivo MRI-derived measurements of human cerebral cortex thickness are providing novel insights into normal and abnormal neuroanatomy, but little is known about their reliability. We investigated how the reliability of cortical thickness measurements is affected by MRI instrument-related factors, including scanner field strength, manufacturer, upgrade and(More)
Longitudinal and multi-site clinical studies create the imperative to characterize and correct technological sources of variance that limit image reproducibility in high-resolution structural MRI studies, thus facilitating precise, quantitative, platform-independent, multi-site evaluation. In this work, we investigated the effects that imaging gradient(More)
Automated MRI-derived measurements of in-vivo human brain volumes provide novel insights into normal and abnormal neuroanatomy, but little is known about measurement reliability. Here we assess the impact of image acquisition variables (scan session, MRI sequence, scanner upgrade, vendor and field strengths), FreeSurfer segmentation pre-processing variables(More)

Embryo selection in in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment has traditionally been done manually using microscopy at intermittent time points during embryo development. Novel technique has made it possible to monitor embryos using time lapse for long periods of time and together with the reduced cost of data storage, this has opened the door to long-term(More)
Video recording and photography are frequently used to document Cultural Heritage (CH) objects and sites. High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging is increasingly being used as it allows a wider range of light to be considered that most current technologies are unable to natively acquire and reproduce. HDR video content however has only recently become possible at(More)
This article discusses the mathematical concepts of multivariate parametric solids and their description by B-spline basis functions. Parametric solids can model both the shape and unisotropic interior. Three types of parametric solids, Coons body of types 0, 1, and 2, are used to demonstrate the interior modelling often used as initial or boundary(More)
