The lesions in the brain white matter of the brain called white matter hyperintensities may cause significant functional impairment and are commonly associated with neurological or psychiatric diseases. The current analysis of these lesions is manually performed by experts in magnetic resonance imaging, and represents a non-trivial, costly and subjective task. Thus, the proposed approac...
Lesions on the brain white matter are commonly found in both asymptomatic and symptomatic neurological patients. The texture analysis and classification on brain MRI makes possible to detect and characterize those lesions. This research internship abroad aims to study the influence of MRI acquisition conditions ontexture analysis and classification in order to make possible the combinat...
