Resting-state fMRI (rs-fMRI) has become an important imaging modality and is commonly used to study intrinsic brain networks. These networks can be obtained by decomposing rs-fMRI data into components, using independent component analysis (ICA). Recently, these ICA components have been used as inputs for neural networks to learn complex...

In clinical practice, as a first approximation, the severity of an abnormality on an image is often determined by measuring its volume. Researchers often first segment this abnormality with a neural network trained by voxel-wise labels and thereafter extract the volume. Instead of this indirect two steps approach, we propose to train neural...

Objective: Recent studies have suggested an association between age-related hearing loss and cognitive decline. Yet, the underlying mechanism explaining this relation remains unknown. In this regard, several studies investigated gray matter (GM) differences in age-related hearing loss but presented inconsistent results regarding the association...

Patients with 1p/19q co-deleted low grade glioma (LGGs) have better prognosis and react better to certain treatments than patients with intact 1p/19q LGG. Currently, information about the 1p/19q co-deletion status is obtained by means of an invasive procedure called biopsy. As an alternative, non-invasive techniques to extract this information...

It has been shown that for surgeries of the lumbar spine, in 1.2-3.3% of the procedures the wrong intervertebral level is chosen to perform the intervention. In other spinal related interventions such as epidural anesthetics and neuraxial blocks considerably larger incorrect identification percentages are reported (63.6% and 71%). Current...

Every year fifteen million infants are born prematurely in the whole world. The maturation of the brain occurs mainly during the third trimester (24-40 weeks of gestational age). Therefore extremely preterm infants (infants born before 25 weeks of gestational age) are vulnerable to brain injuries (perinatal asphyxia and perinatal stroke being...
