PIPPI 2020 Keynote Talk

From Pixels to Clinical Insight: Placental MRI Analysis

Placental MRI presents many challenges for constructing biomarkers of normal development and pathology. We introduce a set of computational tools that support image based studies of the placental anatomy and function. The goal of the talk is to encourage discussion of open problems and potential directions for advancing our understanding of the placenta through imaging and analysis.

Polina Golland is a Henry Ellis Warren (1894) professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and a principal investigator in the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Her primary research interest is in developing novel techniques for medical image analysis and understanding. With her students, Polina has demonstrated novel approaches to image segmentation, shape analysis, functional image analysis and population studies. She has served as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging and of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis. Polina is currently on the editorial board of the Journal of Medical Image Analysis. She is a Fellow of the International Society for Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions.

PIPPI 2020 Invited Talk

Fetal MRI of the central nervous system

Fetal MRI is an important adjunct to prenatal ultrasound for the detection exploration and prognostication of in utero abnormalities. In the beginning maternal sedation was used but this was abandoned due to improved acquisition techniques. Furthermore there is an increasing use of more functional techniques (DWI, DTI, BOLD imaging) to add in the prognostication of certain fetal abnormalities. With the growing applications of AI, new possibilities are available in fetal imaging due to motion correction allowing for volumetric analysis, shape analysis and more robust functional imaging.

Michael Aertsen started a part-time Phd project on ‘The role of advanced fetal imaging in current fetal medicine’ in 2015 after being involved in fetal MR at the University Hospitals for 2 years. From 2015 he was involved in all prenatal and post mortem studies concerning fetal MR in University Hospitals Leuven and regarding artificial intelligence developed at University College London. In 2017 he conducted a retrospective analysis of the posterior fossa alterations in spina bifida aperta. In addition, he also developed a low dose fetal CT protocol for severe skeletal abnormalities. In 2018 he launched the postmortem micro CT to evaluated small fetuses (18 weeks of gestation) and investigate fetal hearts in congenital heart defects as well as normal comparisons. In 2019 he started a large prospective study to examine the normal fetal brain on 3 Tesla MR with anatomic, diffusion weighted and spectroscopy. He is member of the editorial board of European Journal of Radiology and Prenatal Diagnosis.
