Summary of "KALPANA: Advanced Spectroscopic Signal Processing Platform for Improved Accuracy to Aid in Early Diagnosis of Brain Disorders in Clinical Setting."

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) plays a substantial role in the non-invasive detection of brain neurochemicals, antioxidants, and neurotransmitters. Quantitative monitoring of these neurochemicals and neurotransmitters in the brain has a profound application for the understanding of brain disorders. Significant progress in the MR scanner as well as MR pulse sequence development to detect in vivo neurochemicals has been accomplished. The processing of MR signal from these low abundant neurochemicals/neurotransmitters should be very robust and sensitive in order to provide distinctive observations of disease-related neurochemical alterations and their absolute quantitation to aid in early clinical diagnosis. We highlight the diversity in currently available MRS processing tools, and recently introduced, KALPANA, a promising package integrating the end-to-end processing as well as robust quantitation of neurochemicals in a user-friendly approach through a graphical user interface. This further necessitates the futuristic need for advanced MRS processing pipeline and the respective readout can help in early diagnosis and prognosis of diseases in the clinical environment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Signal and data processing method that uses decomposition of wavelets to approximate, estimate, or compress signals with finite time and frequency domains. It represents a signal or data in terms of a fast decaying wavelet series from the original prototype wavelet, called the mother wavelet. This mathematical algorithm has been adopted widely in biomedical disciplines for data and signal processing in noise removal and audio/image compression (e.g., EEG and MRI).

Computer-assisted processing of electric, ultrasonic, or electronic signals to interpret function and activity.

The addition of a tail of polyadenylic acid (POLY A) to the 3' end of mRNA (RNA, MESSENGER). Polyadenylation involves recognizing the processing site signal, (AAUAAA), and cleaving of the mRNA to create a 3' OH terminal end to which poly A polymerase (POLYNUCLEOTIDE ADENYLYLTRANSFERASE) adds 60-200 adenylate residues. The 3' end processing of some messenger RNAs, such as histone mRNA, is carried out by a different process that does not include the addition of poly A as described here.

Advanced technology that is costly, requires highly skilled personnel, and is unique in its particular application. Includes innovative, specialized medical/surgical procedures as well as advanced diagnostic and therapeutic equipment.
