Mathematical tools for analyzing the development of brain pathologies in children

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enables doctors to obtain precise images of human structure and anatomy and the pathologies that affect patients’ brains. However, to analyze and interpret these complex images, radiologists need specific mathematical tools. While some tools exist for interpreting images of the adult brain, these tools are not directly applicable in analyzing brain images of young children and newborn or premature infants. The Franco-Brazilian project STAP, which includes Télécom ParisTech among its partners, seeks to address this need by developing mathematical modeling and MRI analysis algorithms for the youngest patients.
