A challenging issue: detection of white matter hyperintensities in neonatal brain MRI

Abstract :

The progress of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows for a precise exploration of the brain of premature infants at term equivalent age. The so-called DEHSI (diffuse excessive high signal intensity) of the white matter of premature brains remains a challenging issue in terms of definition and thus of interpretation. We propose a semi-automatic detection and quantification method of white matter hyperintensities in MRI relying on morphological operators and max-tree representations, which constitutes a powerful tool to help radiologists for improving their interpretation. Results show better reproducibility and robustness than interactive segmentation.
