Quantitative Fetal Post-Mortem Neuroimaging
Post-mortem imaging of the brain is important to provide information about cause of death, give information to families and provide answers to forensic questions and medical imaging can provide evidence that is hard to obtain via invasive methods. However, post-mortem imaging provides methodological challenges because image contrast can change with factors such as time from death, age and temperature. This project aims to develop quantitative data acquisition and processing pipelines that will allow us to overcome these challenges and allow for robust estimation of abnormalities and factors such as cause of death or time from death. This will be achieved by developing new high resolution quantitative mapping techniques and interfacing them with atlas-based and multivariate data processing methods.
