Abstract

To create and evaluate an interactive software tool for measuring imaging data in situations where hand-drawn region-of-interest measurements are unfeasible, for example, when the structure of interest is patchy with ill-defined boundaries. An interactive grid overlay software tool was implemented that enabled coding of voxels dependent on their imaging appearance with a series of user-defined classes. The Grid Analysis Tool (GAT) was designed to automatically extract quantitative imaging data, grouping the results by tissue class. Inter- and intra-observer reproducibility was evaluated by six observers of various backgrounds in a study of acute stroke patients. The software tool enabled a more detailed classification of the stroke lesion than would be possible with a region-of-interest approach. However, inter-observer coefficients of variation (CVs) were relatively high, reaching 70% in "possibly abnormal" tissue and around 15-20% in normal appearing tissues, while intra-observer CVs were no more than 13% in "possibly abnormal" tissue and generally less than 1% in normal-appearing tissues. The grid-overlay method overcomes some of the limitations of conventional Region Of Interest (ROI) approaches, providing a viable alternat...Continue Reading

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.
