Subtyping brain diseases from imaging data

  title={Subtyping brain diseases from imaging data},
  author={J. Wen and E. Varol and Zhijian Yang and Gyujoon Hwang and Dominic B. Dwyer and Anahita Fathi Kazerooni and Paris Alexandros Lalousis and Christos Davatzikos},
The imaging community has increasingly adopted machine learning (ML) methods to provide individualized imaging signatures related to disease diagnosis, prognosis, and response to treatment. Clinical neuroscience and cancer imaging have been two areas in which ML has offered particular promise. However, many neurologic and neuropsychiatric diseases, as well as cancer, are often heterogeneous in terms of their clinical manifestations, neuroanatomical patterns or genetic underpinnings. Therefore…

A deep learning framework identifies dimensional representations of Alzheimer’s Disease from brain structure
Smile-GAN is described and validated, a semi-supervised deep-clustering method, which examines neuroanatomical heterogeneity contrasted against normal brain structure, to identify disease subtypes through neuroimaging signatures, and offered complementary performance to amyloid/tau in predicting clinical progression.
Brain Subtyping Enhances The Neuroanatomical Discrimination of Schizophrenia
Identifying distinctive subtypes of schizophrenia could ultimately enhance diagnostic and prognostic accuracy. We aimed to uncover neuroanatomical subtypes of chronic schizophrenia patients to test
Characterizing Heterogeneity in Neuroimaging, Cognition, Clinical Symptoms, and Genetics Among Patients With Late-Life Depression.
This study characterized heterogeneity in LLD into 2 dimensions with distinct neuroanatomical, cognitive, clinical, and genetic profiles, providing a potential mechanism for investigating the heterogeneity of LLD and the relevance of the latent dimensions to possible disease mechanisms, clinical outcomes, and responses to interventions.
Multimodal population brain imaging in the UK Biobank prospective epidemiological study
UK Biobank brain imaging is described and results derived from the first 5,000 participants' data release are presented, which have already yielded a rich range of associations between brain imaging and other measures collected by UK Biobanks.
Two distinct neuroanatomical subtypes of schizophrenia revealed using machine learning.
Two distinct neuroanatomical subtypes of schizophrenia are discovered that challenge the notion that brain volume loss is a general feature of schizophrenia and suggest differential aetiologies and facilitate strategies for clinical trial enrichment and stratification, and precision diagnostics.
Resting-state connectivity biomarkers define neurophysiological subtypes of depression
It is shown here that patients with depression can be subdivided into four neurophysiological subtypes defined by distinct patterns of dysfunctional connectivity in limbic and frontostriatal networks, which may be useful for identifying the individuals who are most likely to benefit from targeted neurostimulation therapies.
CHIMERA: Clustering of Heterogeneous Disease Effects via Distribution Matching of Imaging Patterns
A novel probabilistic clustering approach, CHIMERA, modeling the pathological process by a combination of multiple regularized transformations from normal/control population to the patient population, thereby seeking to identify multiple imaging patterns that relate to disease effects and to better characterize disease heterogeneity.
Multi-scale semi-supervised clustering of brain images: deriving disease subtypes
A novel multi-scale semi-supervised clustering method, termed MAGIC, is proposed, to disentangle the heterogeneity of brain diseases and provides guidance regarding when such analyses can succeed or should be taken with caution.
