- Deep Fusion of Multi-Template Using Spatio-Temporal Weighted Multi-Hypergraph Convolutional Networks for Brain Disease Analysisel octubre 17, 2023 a las 1:17 pm
Conventional functional connectivity network (FCN) based on resting-state fMRI (rs-fMRI) can only reflect the relationship between pairwise brain regions. Thus, the hyper-connectivity network (HCN) has been widely used to reveal high-order interactions among multiple brain regions. However, existing HCN models are essentially spatial HCN, which reflect the spatial relevance of multiple brain regions, but ignore the temporal correlation among multiple time points. Furthermore, the majority of HCN construction and learning frameworks are limited to using a single template, while the multi-template carries richer information. To address these issues, we first employ multiple templates to parcellate the rs-fMRI into different brain regions. Then, based on the multi-template data, we propose a spatio-temporal weighted HCN (STW-HCN) to capture more comprehensive high-order temporal and spatial properties of brain activity. Next, a novel deep fusion model of multi-template called spatio-temporal weighted multi-hypergraph convolutional network (STW-MHGCN) is proposed to fuse the STW-HCN of multiple templates, which extracts the deep interrelation information between different templates. Finally, we evaluate our method on the ADNI-2 and ABIDE-I datasets for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) analysis. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method is superior to the state-of-the-art approaches in MCI and ASD classification, and the abnormal spatio-temporal hyper-edges discovered by our method have significant significance for the brain abnormalities analysis of MCI and ASD.
- Quantitative Photoacoustic Tomography Using Iteratively Refined Wavefield Reconstruction Inversion: A Simulation Studyel octubre 17, 2023 a las 1:17 pm
The ultimate goal of photoacoustic tomography is to accurately map the absorption coefficient throughout the imaged tissue. Most studies either assume that acoustic properties of biological tissues such as speed of sound (SOS) and acoustic attenuation are homogeneous or fluence is uniform throughout the entire tissue. These assumptions reduce the accuracy of estimations of derived absorption coefficients (DeACs). Our quantitative photoacoustic tomography (qPAT) method estimates DeACs using iteratively refined wavefield reconstruction inversion (IR-WRI) which incorporates the alternating direction method of multipliers to solve the cycle skipping challenge associated with full wave inversion algorithms. Our method compensates for SOS inhomogeneity, fluence decay, and acoustic attenuation. We evaluate the performance of our method on a neonatal head digital phantom.
- NRTR: Neuron Reconstruction With Transformer From 3D Optical Microscopy Imagesel octubre 17, 2023 a las 1:17 pm
The neuron reconstruction from raw Optical Microscopy (OM) image stacks is the basis of neuroscience. Manual annotation and semi-automatic neuron tracing algorithms are time-consuming and inefficient. Existing deep learning neuron reconstruction methods, although demonstrating exemplary performance, greatly demand complex rule-based components. Therefore, a crucial challenge is designing an end-to-end neuron reconstruction method that makes the overall framework simpler and model training easier. We propose a Neuron Reconstruction Transformer (NRTR) that, discarding the complex rule-based components, views neuron reconstruction as a direct set-prediction problem. To the best of our knowledge, NRTR is the first image-to-set deep learning model for end-to-end neuron reconstruction. The overall pipeline consists of the CNN backbone, Transformer encoder-decoder, and connectivity construction module. NRTR generates a point set representing neuron morphological characteristics for raw neuron images. The relationships among the points are established through connectivity construction. The point set is saved as a standard SWC file. In experiments using the BigNeuron and VISoR-40 datasets, NRTR achieves excellent neuron reconstruction results for comprehensive benchmarks and outperforms competitive baselines. Results of extensive experiments indicate that NRTR is effective at showing that neuron reconstruction is viewed as a set-prediction problem, which makes end-to-end model training available.
