Projects

 

I. Spinal cord atrophy in Multiple Sclerosis:

  1. Spinal cord (SC) atrophy is evaluated as a potential marker of disease progression in MS. This project focuses on the development, application and evaluation of SC segmentation strategies (CORDIAL, MDGRU for GM-WM differentiation) in close collaboration with Prof. Cattin and co-workers. Single and multi-center data are analysed retrospectively regarding SC volume changes and its relation to disease severity and progression.
  2. Prospective study on structural analysis of spinal cord grey and white matter changes in patients with multiple sclerosis (SNSF sponsored - SNF 320030_156860); patient recruitment is closed.
  3. Application of SC segmentation strategies to other neurological diseases.

 

II. Cerebellar atrophy in Multiple Sclerosis:

  1. Temporal evolution of focal cerebellar changes in Multiple Sclerosis: a 7 year longitudinal study.
