Fusing Structural, Functional and Diffusion Tensor MR Image for Neurological Disorders

Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (sMRI) provides high-quality images of soft tissue through the use external magnetic fields and electromagnetic radio-frequency pulses to excite protons abundant in the human body. Diffusion Tensor MRI (dtMRI) is a unique, non-invasive imaging technique capable of measuring the anisotropic diffusion of water molecules in biological tissues.

Stereo Video-based Head Pose Tracking for Motion Correction in PET Reconstruction

Typically, movement of the patient during any medical imaging scan will result in a degraded final image if this motion is not accounted for. This research project aims to use the video from two cameras, recording from different angles, to estimate the motion of a patient’s head during a PET (positron emission tomography) scan. By using the video from two cameras to track features of the patient’s head, motion in all three dimensions can be estimated.
