  1. 1. ATLAS-BASED SEGMENTATION OF ULTRAHIGH-RESOLUTION STRUCTURAL MR HEAD IMAGES ACQUIRED AT 7 TESLA

    University essay from

    Author : Frida Johansson; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Anatomical segmentation; Brain; MRI; 7 Tesla; Pincram; MAPER; Shape based averaging; Ultrahigh resolution;

    Abstract : Purpose: The purpose of this work was to find out how the existing brain atlases and segmentation algorithms perform when applied to ultrahigh-resolution MR brain images, acquired with a 7-Tesla scanner. Also to make adaptations to deal with the potential challenges and evaluate the quality of the anatomical segmentations of the 7- Tesla images. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of discrepancies between manual and automatic segmentation to improve anatomical brain atlases

    University essay from

    Author : Anna Sörensson; [2021-05-10]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Anatomical brain atlas; Image segmentation; Image registration;

    Abstract : Purpose: To characterize discrepancies between expert manually segmented brain images from Hammers Atlas Database and automatically generated segmentations of the same images; to decide whether they can be attributed to flaws in the automatic segmentation or in the manual segmentation; and to determine general rules that enable these decisions. Theory: Image segmentation plays an important role in clinical neuroscience and experimental medicine for extraction of information from medical images, and it is a fundamental image processing step in medical image analysis.

  3. 3. ATLAS DATABASES OF HUMAN BRAIN ANATOMY: QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPARISON

    University essay from

    Author : Amanda Philipsson Franzén; [2021-01-11]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Brain atlas concordance problem; Quantitative comparison; Qualitative comparison; Hammersmith; 2012 MICCAI Multi-Atlas Labelling Challenge Data;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to quantitatively and qualitatively compare the two brain atlases databases, Hammersmith and 2012 MICCAI Multi-Atlas Labelling Challenge data, by developing a quantitative method. Theory Anatomical atlases of the human brain provide reference information about its structure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pre-planning of Individualized Ankle Implants Based on Computed Tomography - Automated Segmentation and Optimization of Acquisition Parameters

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Matilda Engström Messén; Elvira Moser; [2021]
    Keywords : osteochondral lesions of the talus; computed tomography; U-net; convolutional neural network; dice coefficient; fotled; ledbrosk; osteochondral lesion of the talus; datortomografi; U-net; convolutional neuralt nätverk; dicekoefficient;

    Abstract : The structure of the ankle joint complex creates an ideal balance between mobility and stability, which enables gait. If a lesion emerges in the ankle joint complex, the anatomical structure is altered, which may disturb mobility and stability and cause intense pain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Image inpainting methods for elimination of non-anatomical objects in medical images

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Andrea Lorenzo Polo; [2021]
    Keywords : Medical Imaging; Tumor Ablation; Inpainting; U-Net; Convolutional Neural Network;

    Abstract : This project studies the removal of non-anatomical objects from medical images. During tumor ablation procedures, the ablation probes appear in the image, hindering the performance of segmentation, registration, and dose computation algorithms. These algorithms can also be affected by artifacts and noise generated by body implants. READ MORE
