Thesis title

Deep learning for the analysis of medical images in multiple sclerosis.

Short abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system with both an autoimmune and a neurodegenerative component. Conventional MRI techniques poorly predict disability worsening, leading to research exploring molecular imaging with PET and new biomarkers, such as choroid plexuses (CPs), which have been proposed as a neuroinflammatory biomarker along the entire disease course. This project aims to develop deep learning methods for automatic processing of MRI data to study CP segmentation and perfusion changes, as well as to explore the clinical course of patients based on the combination of different information.
