Grant projects Advanced methods for recognition of MR brain images for computer aided diagnosis of neuropsychiatric disorders

Coordinator Coordinator: Schwarz Daniel

Duration Duration: 2012–2015

Development of software usable in clinical practice for computer-aided diagnosis of neuropsychiatric disorders from MR images of brain.

The project was based on our experience with advanced analysis of MR images, including assessment of brain morphology in the first episode of schizophrenia. The developed software combined methods for image processing and analysis with advanced machine learning algorithms for prediction, classification and recognition. This provided a new tool for the analysis of image data, which brought medical imaging closer to the clinical psychiatry by making diagnosis more objective. The methodology included the development of algorithms aimed at the description of the images with the use of automated morphometry as well as the development of classifiers using features extracted from various data sources.
