While diffusion MRI has been extremely promising in the study of MTBI, identifying patients with recent MTBI remains a challenge. The literature is mixed with regard to localizing injury in these patients, however, gray matter such as the thalamus and white matter including the corpus callosum and frontal deep white matter have been repeatedly implicated as areas at high risk for injury. The purpose of this study is to develop a machine learning framework to classify MTBI patients and controls… Expand
Identifying mild traumatic brain injury patients from MR images using bag of visual words
This work aims to directly use MR images taken shortly after injury to detect whether a patient suffers from mTBI, by incorporating machine learning and computer vision techniques to learn features suitable discriminating between mT BI patients and normal patients. Expand
MTBI Identification From Diffusion MR Images Using Bag of Adversarial Visual Features
The experimental results show that the BAF significantly outperforms earlier works relying on the mean values of MR metrics in selected brain regions, and is compared with several previous approaches. Expand


MR Imaging Applications in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: An Imaging Update.
Evidence of subtle brain changes in mTBI as revealed by magnetic resonance imaging techniques, which are not demonstrable by conventional imaging, will be reviewed to improve understanding of the true impact ofmTBI and its pathogenesis. Expand
Prediction of longterm outcome of neuropsychological tests of MTBI patients using imaging features
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) is a growing public health problem with an underestimated incidence of over one million people annually in the U.S. Neuropsychological tests are used to both assessExpand
Evaluating bag-of-visual-words representations in scene classification
This study provides an empirical basis for designing visual-word representations that are likely to produce superior classification performance and applies techniques used in text categorization to generate image representations that differ in the dimension, selection, and weighting of visual words.
