A Geometric Framework for Feature Mappings in Multimodal Fusion of Brain Image Data

Fusing multimodal brain image features to empower statistical analysis has attracted considerable research interest. Generally, a feature mapping is learned in the fusion process so the cross-modality relationship in the multimodal data can be more effectively extracted in a common feature space. Most of the prior work achieve this goal by data-driven approaches without considering the geometry properties of the feature spaces where the data are embedded. It results in a huge sacrifice of untapped information. Here, we propose to fuse the multimodal brain images through a novel geometric approach. The key idea is to encode various brain image features with the local metric change on brain shapes, such that the feature mapping can be efficiently solved by some geometric mapping functions, i.e., quasiconformal and harmonic mappings. We approach our multimodal fusion framework (MFRM) in two steps: surface feature mapping and volumetric feature mapping. For each of them, we design an informative Riemannian metric based on distinct brain anatomical features and achieve image fusion via diffeomorphic maps. We evaluate our proposed method on two brain image cohorts. The experimental results reveal the effectiveness of our proposed fra...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
