Hippocampal Morphometry Study by Automated Surface Fluid Registration and its Application to Alzheimer's Disease

Abstract : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a severe and growing public health crisis. Efforts are underway to look for AD early detection in an efficient manner. Among all the AD biomarkers, hippocampal atrophy assessed on high-resolution T1-weighted MRI is the best established and validated. Hippocampal morphometry is increasingly used in the AD research, with modeling the hippocampus as a 3D parametric surface mesh. However, a major question in the analysis is how to align corresponding surface regions across subjects. Here we develop a system for detecting AD symptoms on hippocampal surfaces with an automated surface fluid registration method, which is based on conformal surface representation and mutual information regularized image fluid registration. Since conformal mappings are diffeomorphic and the mutual information method is able to drive a diffeomorphic flow that is adjusted to enforce appropriate surface correspondences in the surface parameter domain, combining conformal and fluid mappings will generate 3D shape correspondences that are diffeomorphic. We also incorporate in the system a novel method to compute curvatures using surface conformal parameterization. Experimental results in three hippocampal datasets show that the new system outperformed an early similar method and the popular SPHARM tool.
