Evaluation of Cavernous Sinus Invasion by Pituitary Adenoma Using Deep Learning Based Denoising MR

2020-02-17 18:20:51 | BioPortfolio


Preoperative evaluation of cavernous sinus invasion by pituitary adenoma is critical for performing safe operation and deciding on surgical extent as well as for treatment success. Because of the small size of the pituitary gland and sellar fossa, determining the exact relationship between the pituitary adenoma and cavernous sinus can be challenging. Performing thin slice thickness MRI may be beneficial but is inevitably associated with increased noise level. By applying deep learning based denoising algorithm, diagnosis of cavernous sinus invasion by pituitary adenoma may be improved.

Denoising arterial spin labeling perfusion MRI with deep machine learning.

Arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion MRI is a noninvasive technique for measuring cerebral blood flow (CBF) in a quantitative manner. A technical challenge in ASL MRI is data processing because of t...

Connecting Image Denoising and High-Level Vision Tasks via Deep Learning.

Image denoising and high-level vision tasks are usually handled independently in the conventional practice of computer vision, and their connection is fragile. In this paper, we cope with the two join...

Dural Arteriovenous Fistula of the Vein of Trolard Mimicking a Cavernous Sinus Fistula.

Arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) involving the cavernous sinus usually become clinically apparent due to eye symptoms. Although rare, the same symptoms can be associated with AVFs located remote from the...

Arterial spin labeling MR image denoising and reconstruction using unsupervised deep learning.

Arterial spin labeling (ASL) imaging is a powerful magnetic resonance imaging technique that allows to quantitatively measure blood perfusion non-invasively, which has great potential for assessing ti...

Bayesian deep matrix factorization network for multiple images denoising.

This paper aims at proposing a robust and fast low rank matrix factorization model for multiple images denoising. To this end, a novel model, Bayesian deep matrix factorization network (BDMF), is pres...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An acquired or spontaneous abnormality in which there is communication between CAVERNOUS SINUS, a venous structure, and the CAROTID ARTERIES. It is often associated with HEAD TRAUMA, specifically basilar skull fractures (SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR). Clinical signs often include VISION DISORDERS and INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION.

Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the CAVERNOUS SINUS of the brain. Infections of the paranasal sinuses and adjacent structures, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, and THROMBOPHILIA are associated conditions. Clinical manifestations include dysfunction of cranial nerves III, IV, V, and VI, marked periorbital swelling, chemosis, fever, and visual loss. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p711)

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)

An irregularly shaped venous space in the dura mater at either side of the sphenoid bone.
