This paper proposes a novel algorithm to extract feature landmarks on the vestibular system (VS), for the analysis of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) disease. AIS is a 3-D spinal deformity commonly occurred in adolescent girls with unclear etiology. One popular hypothesis was suggested to be the structural changes in the VS that induce the disturbed balance perception, and further cause the spinal deformity. The morphometry of VS to study the geometric differences between the healthy and…

Lateral semi-circular canal asymmetry in females with idiopathic scoliosis

The anatomy of the semicircular canals (SCC) within the vestibular system of individuals with AIS was characterized through a novel approach utilizing T2-weighted magnetic resonance images (MRI).

Complex line bundle Laplacians

The present work extends the theoretical and numerical discussion of the well-known Laplace–Beltrami operator by equipping the underlying manifolds with additional structure provided by vector bundles by describing a robust and efficient finite-element discretization.

Does adolescent idiopathic scoliosis relate to vestibular disorders ? = La scoliose idiopathique de l'adolescent est-elle liée à une dysfonction vestibulaire ?

There is not enough evidence to show a link between unilateral, isolated, Vestibular dysfunction and AIS, and a more global pathophysiological concept is proposed, which involves a trouble of the orthostatic postural control, with disturbance in the multisensory integration of vestibular, visual and somesthesic inputs.

A Parallel Markov Cerebrovascular Segmentation Algorithm Based on Statistical Model

A parallel segmentation algorithm based on statistical model with Markov random field with MRF is proposed to segmenting cerebral blood vessels from the time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography images accurately and will offer significant assistance for physicians on the prevention and diagnosis of cerebrovascular diseases.

Efficiently Computing Exact Geodesic Loops within Finite Steps

This paper is the first to prove the existence and uniqueness of geodesic loop restricted on a closed face sequence and contributes also with an efficient algorithm to iteratively evolve an initial closed path on a given mesh into an exact geodesIC loop within finite steps.

It is suggested that adolescents with IS have normal balance in static, stable positions but are not able to perform as well as normal adolescents in sensory‐challenged positions, particularly if they have a severe, progressive curve.

This work presents the geodesic curvature flow equation on general smooth manifolds based on an energy minimization of curves as dGCF, and applies it to three problems: the closed-curve evolution on manifolds, the discrete scale-space construction, and the edge detection of images painted on triangulated surfaces.

Balance Control in Adolescents With Idiopathic Scoliosis and Disturbed Somatosensory Function

The finding of significantly larger difference in bilateral SSEP latencies in patients with A IS indicated the association of abnormal SSEPs with AIS, and the presence of abnormal somatosensory function in a subgroup of patientswith AIS.
