Trauma occurs in many forms at various instances of our daily life and some subtle ones go unnoticed until sever symptoms are observed. The affects on life vary from impairments to severe incapacitation. Current diagnosis methods are based on questionairs and subjective assessment with inherent variability associated to the doctors. In this internship we will be developing an automated diagnosis framework based on MRI imaging. The frist task will lead to automated image analysis pipeline providing accurate delineation of structures in the brain and provide their pertinent measurements. The next task will develop a framework to automatically identify data as being from patients or healthy individuals. This will then incorporate the current clinical paradigms and lead into an integrated framework. This pipeline and framework will then be further integrated into the current NeuroKinetics clinical assessment protocol.
