I. Spinal cord atrophy in Multiple Sclerosis:
- 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.
- 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.
- Application of SC segmentation strategies to other neurological diseases.
II. Cerebellar atrophy in Multiple Sclerosis:
- Temporal evolution of focal cerebellar changes in Multiple Sclerosis: a 7 year longitudinal study.
