Artificial Intelligence Analysis of Initial Scan Evolution of Traumatic Brain Injured Patient to Predict Neurological Outcome

2019-08-18 20:09:19 | BioPortfolio


We assume that an early iterative automatic CT scan analysis (D0, D1 and D3) by different AI approaches will allow an early differentiation of the tissues evolution after TBI. Our objective is to couple theses scan profiles to a neurological evolution, measured by therapeutic intensity.


Traumatic brain injury is a common and serious pathology, responsible of an important morbi-mortality. The TBI can be consider as a complex set of nosological entities of different evolution with difficult early identification whereas the main issue of this pathology depends on prevention and management of the lesions caused by the initial cerebral aggression.

Different evolutionary profiles seems to exist and sometimes coexists: edema evolution, hemorrhagic transformation and/or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) resorption issues with hydrocephalus apparition.

Currently, there is no Imaging methods that can be used in every day clinical management that allows a visualization, quantification and prediction of these different lesional evolutions

CT scan is the reference imaging method for TBI patient monitoring. It allows a lesion description, a therapeutic adaptation and an evaluation of the prognostic.

Even if it is used as a routine examination, the analysis of cerebral scanners remains manual and a non-quantitative one, which make a little informative analysis as far as lesions evolution is concerned.

Recently it has been established the automatic MRI analysis with AI approach allows:

1. - To show aspects of images that can't be seen to the naked eye

2. - To automatically segment and quantify the different tissues (edema, hemorrhage...). First tests on this kind of analysis on CT scans shows that this technology can be transferred from MRI to CT scans and more importantly it brings out new quantitative informations on cerebral lesions evolution.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.

A form of acquired brain injury which occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.

Bleeding within the brain as a result of penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Traumatically induced hemorrhages may occur in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM (see BRAIN STEM HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC); and CEREBELLUM.

A condition characterized by long-standing brain dysfunction or damage, usually of three months duration or longer. Potential etiologies include BRAIN INFARCTION; certain NEURODEGENERATIVE DISORDERS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ANOXIA, BRAIN; ENCEPHALITIS; certain NEUROTOXICITY SYNDROMES; metabolic disorders (see BRAIN DISEASES, METABOLIC); and other conditions.

Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.
