Magnetic resonance imaging is an essential tool for assessing soft tissues. The desire for increased signal-to-noise and improved tissue contrast has spurred development of imaging systems operating at magnetic fields exceeding 3.0 Tesla (T). Unfortunately, traditional imaging methods are of...
Technical report TR05-13. This thesis addresses the task of automatic segmentation of brain tumors and edema in Magnetic Resonance images. This is motivated by potential applications in assessing tumor growth, assessing treatment responses, computer-assisted surgery, radiation therapy target...
The popularity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) owes much to its flexibility. Sensitive to a host of different biophysical phenomena, parameters of the scan can be fine-tuned to highlight specific pathologies. One such mechanism for generating image contrast is magnetic susceptibility—the...
The hippocampus is a brain structure responsible for memory, learning, and the stress response; it is also used as a model for major depressive disorder (MDD) in preclinical studies. Preclinical models have shown that the hippocampal subfields are differentially affected by chronic stress....
Prenatal alcohol exposure has detrimental consequences on brain development, resulting in a wide range of physical, cognitive and behaviour deficits termed fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). Advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods have identified numerous abnormalities of brain...
Magnetic resonance imaging based radiotherapy treatment planning: problems, solutions, and applicationsDownload
Despite their unmatched soft-tissue contrast, Magnetic Resonance (MR) images suffer from wide-ranging image distortions; this has raised questions about their suitability as an imaging modality upon which to base conformal radiation therapy treatment plans. This thesis addresses image distortion...
