Brain iron deposition, in particular deep gray matter nuclei, increases with advancing age. Hereditary Hemochromatosis (HH) is the most common inherited disorder of systemic iron excess in Europeans and recent studies claimed high brain iron accumulation in patient with Hemochromatosis. In this study, we focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based differential diagnosis of brain iron deposition in HH via Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM), which is an established Magnetic Resonance… 



DeepQSM - Using Deep Learning to Solve the Dipole Inversion for MRI Susceptibility Mapping

DeepQSM can be used to determine the composition of myelin sheets of nerve fibers in the brain, and to assess quantitative information on iron homeostasis and its dysregulation, and will subsequently contribute to a better understanding of these biological processes in health and disease.

Screening Patients with Early Stage Parkinson’s Disease Using a Machine Learning Technique: Measuring the Amount of Iron in the Basal Ganglia

An SVM model based on QSM offers competitive accuracy for screening early PD patients and evaluates non-motor symptoms, which may offer clinicians the ability to assess the progression of motor symptoms in the patient population.

A Preliminary attempt to Visualize Nigrosome 1 in the Subtantia Nigra for Parkinson's Disease at 3T: An efficient Susceptibility Map-Weighted Imaging (SMWI) with Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping using Deep Neural Network (QSMnet).

An efficient SMWI processing approach using the deep neural network (QSMnet) that provides a similar SMWI image to that obtained with the conventional iterative QSM algorithm and improves QSM processing speed by avoiding iterative computation is introduced.

Multi-Echo Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping for Strategically Acquired Gradient Echo (STAGE) Imaging

This study shows that using a data fidelity term and structural constraints results in reduced noise and streaking artifacts while preserving structural details in QSM data and yields less artifacts.

U-Net: Convolutional Networks for Biomedical Image Segmentation

It is shown that such a network can be trained end-to-end from very few images and outperforms the prior best method (a sliding-window convolutional network) on the ISBI challenge for segmentation of neuronal structures in electron microscopic stacks.

Fast robust automated brain extraction

An automated method for segmenting magnetic resonance head images into brain and non‐brain has been developed and described and examples of results and the results of extensive quantitative testing against “gold‐standard” hand segmentations, and two other popular automated methods.

Improving susceptibility mapping using a threshold‐based K‐space/image domain iterative reconstruction approach

To improve susceptibility quantification, a threshold‐based k‐space/image domain iterative approach that uses geometric information from the susceptibility map itself as a constraint to overcome the
