Lumen Segmentation in Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography Using Backscattering Tracked and Initialized Random Walks
Intravascular imaging using optical coherence tomography (OCT) is commonly used in interventional cardiology for proper diagnosis and surgical planning. OCT provides high-­‐resolution images for detailed investigation of atherosclerosis induced thickening of the lumen wall resulting in arterial blockage and triggering... Read more

Electric Field Model of Transcranial Electric Stimulation in Nonhuman Primates: Correspondence to Individual Motor Threshold
This paper describes a pipeline for realistic head models of nonhuman primates for simulations of noninvasive brain stimulation, and uses these models together with empirical threshold measurements to demonstrate that the models capture individual anatomical variability. Based on structural magnetic... Read more
