Delayed brain atrophy, measured on seriated MRI volumetric scans may represents an useful biomarker to predict the prognosis of these patients because data coming from recent observations show relevant correlations between the amount of WM atrophy and prognosis assessed by neuropsychological tests. Here we present a new graph-based method for MRI brain segmentation, and its application to the problem of atrophy estimation for prognostic inference.

Abstract

Delayed brain atrophy, measured on seriated MRI volumetric scans may represents an useful biomarker to predict the prognosis of these patients because data coming from recent observations show relevant correlations between the amount of WM atrophy and prognosis assessed by neuropsychological tests. Here we present a new graph-based method for MRI brain segmentation, and its application to the problem of atrophy estimation for prognostic inference.
