The 32nd Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS 2016) will be held at the ExCeL Centre in London from the 14th to 17th September 2016. The Translational Imaging Group, in collaboration with the Queen's Square Multiple Sclerosis Centre, has contributed many of this year's abstracts, including two oral presentations.

Sjoerd Vos was one of three invited faculty at the second “Advanced Workshop on Diffusion Tensor Imaging” held at the Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran. This workshop covered the principal aspects from diffusion-weighting in MRI, through tensor estimation, data quality checks, through advanced modelling of complex fibre configurations and microstructural properties.

The Preterm Imaging Team recently published work in Brain and Behavior on cortical spectral matching in our neonatal cohort.


Eliza Orasanu, Andrew Melbourne, M. Jorge Cardoso, Herve Lombaert, Giles S. Kendall, Nicola J. Robert- son, Neil Marlow, and Sebastien Ourselin. Cortical folding of the preterm brain: a longitudinal analysis of extremely-preterm born neonates using spectral matching. Brain and Behavior, In Press, 2016.

The journal of Medical Image Analysis has accepted our work on minimally interactive segmentation of the placenta from fetal MRI (online available here). This paper is an extention of our MICCAI 2015 paper. Authors: Guotai Wang, Maria A. Zuluaga, Rosalind Pratt, Michael Aertsen, Anna L. David, Jan Deprest, Tom Vercauteren, Sebastien Ourselin.

Congratulations again to Eliza Orasanu for her work on Mapping Longitudinal White Matter Changes in Extremely Preterm Born Infants and Local shape analysis of the thalamus in extremely preterm born young adults. The work received first prize in the Paediatric Study Group session at ISMRM 2016 in Singapore.
