Th3 nub3rs 0f a br41n - Mathematics behind popular algorithms in today's Neuromaging


Davide Poggiali (Università di Padova) ore 11:45 - aula riunioni del primo piano (IAC, via dei Taurini 19)

In Neuroscience study, imaging systems as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) has assumed a crucial role in the last years. To extract quantitative information from MRI and PET images, many mathematical algorithms has been gathered into widely used software suites as Freesurfer, SPM, FLS or the most recent ANTs.

A good knowledge about such algorithm is useful in order to correctly choose optional parameters and to avoid misuse.

In this talk some important algorithm of image will be presented, explained in detail and showed in action with some examples. In particular we will focus on MRI segmentation, registration, cortical thickness evaluation, and PET compartment models.
