This paper presents a comparison study between 10 automatic and six interactive methods for liver segmentation from contrast-enhanced CT images. It is based on results from the "MICCAI 2007 Grand Challenge" workshop, where 16 teams evaluated their algorithms on a common database. A collection of 20 clinical images with reference segmentations was provided(More)
Cerebellar dysfunction is an important contributor to disability in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), however, few in vivo studies focused on cerebellar volume loss so far. This relates to technical challenges regarding the segmentation of the cerebellum. In this study, we evaluated the semi-automatic ECCET software for performing cerebellar volumetry(More)
In the present study, acquisition and timing of conditioned eyeblink responses (CRs) were correlated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based cerebellar volume both in healthy human subjects and patients with cerebellar disease. Thirty-three healthy subjects and 25 patients with pure cortical cerebellar degeneration participated. Cerebellar volumes were(More)
Previous findings suggested that the human cerebellum is involved in the acquisition but not the long-term storage of motor associations. The finding of preserved retention in cerebellar patients was fundamentally different from animal studies which show that both acquisition and retention depends on the integrity of the cerebellum. The present study(More)
The aim of the present study was to compare the severity of cerebellar ataxia as measured by the International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale (ICARS) by Trouillas et al. [ J Neurol Sci 1997;145:205-211] with the cerebellar volume in chronic cerebellar disease. Fifteen patients with pure cerebellar degeneration were investigated. Seven patients suffered(More)

The acquisition and timing of delay-conditioned eyeblink responses (CRs) have been shown to be significantly impaired in patients with disorders restricted to the cortex of the superior cerebellum. We were interested if patients improve incidences and timing of CRs across three sessions on three consecutive days. A standard delay paradigm was used in 9(More)
As yet, human cerebellar lesion studies have not taken advantage of direct magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cerebellar nuclei in individual patients. In the present study, susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) was used to visualize lesions of the dentate nuclei in patients with chronic focal lesions. Fifteen patients with cerebellar lesions either(More)
