Preprint available: Microstructure Diffusion Scalar Measures from Reduced MRI Acquisitions

[19 Sep 2019]

We propose the so-called "Apparent Measures Using Reduced Acquisitions" (AMURA) to drastically reduce the number of samples needed for the estimation of q-space measures such as RTOP, RTAP and RTPP. AMURA avoids the calculation of the whole EAP by assuming the diffusion anisotropy is roughly independent from the radial direction.

Un trabajo fin de grado realizado en el LPI consigue un 98% de acierto en el diagnóstico del TDAH

[30 Aug 2019]

El TFG realizado por Patricia Amado Caballero "Ayuda al diagnóstico del TDAH en la infancia mediante técnicas de procesado de señal y aprendizaje" ha dado lugar a un sistema que alcanza un 98% de acierto en el diagnóstico del TDAH. El TFG aplica técnicas de aprendizaje profundo (deep learning) para analizar firmas espectrales en patrones de movimiento. Para adquirir estos patrones se han utilizado pulseras de actividad que no interfieren para nada en la vida diaria del niño.
