**Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI); Isotropic and Anisotropic maps**

Glioma Common primary brain tumors. Typical infiltrative growth pattern glioma cells preferentially infiltrate along white matter fibers. Conventional MRI cannot accurately localize microscopic glioma infiltrations, therefore it does not always permit precise delineation of tumor margins or tumor differentiation from edema and/or treatment effects. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI); Isotropic and Anisotropic maps Diffusion of water molecules

Work in progress… PCA or LDA?

8
**Why Principal Component Analysis?**

Maximize variance by axis transformation

9
**Dimensionality Reduction**

Can ignore the components of lower significance. You do lose some information, but if the eigenvalues are small, you don’t lose much n dimensions in original data calculate n eigenvectors and eigenvalues choose only the first p eigenvectors, based on their eigenvalues final data set has only p dimensions Variance Dimensionality 9

10
Limitations of PCA Are the maximum-variance variables the relevant features for discrimination preservation? 10

11
**Linear Discriminant Analysis**

What is the goal of LDA? Perform dimensionality reduction “while preserving as much of the class discriminatory information as possible”. Seeks to find directions along which the classes are best separated. Takes into consideration the within-class scatter but also the between-class scatter.

12
**Feature dimensionality reduction methods**

PCA given an s-dimensional vector representation (features) of each sample in a training set, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) tries to find a s-dimensional space whose basis vectors correspond to the maximum-variance directions in the original feature space. The dimensionality of this new space is then normally decreased to a lower one (t << s) by neglecting directions with low eigenvalues. If x is the feature array, it is possible to diagonalise the covariance matrix: and obtain the eigenvalues of the linear transformation Matrix T, that is Starting from that, it is possible to calculate the PC’s LDA Linear Discriminant Analysis finds the vectors in the space that best discriminate among classes. For two classes, the solution proposed by Fisher is to maximize a function that represents the difference between the means, normalized by a measure of the within-class scatter Between-class scatter matrix Within-class scatter matrix

**Prospects Feature reduction or selection? PCA Fisher score LDA ICA**

Both selection and reduction?? Fisher score (with a threshold according to the AUC plateau [as a function of the FS]) Jaccard Coefficient to set the ‘best’ ANN threshold for segmentation FLAIR segmentation is promising!

**Changes in glioma water diffusion values after chemotherapy: work in progress!!**

LGG (low-grade glioma) cells grow and diffuse typically along the white matter tracts Diffusion Tensor Imaging in glial tumors allows to depict white matter alterations not visible by conventional MRI Price et al., Clin Radiol 2003; Wang et al., AJNR 2009 Starting from Diffusion Tensor it is possible to obtain two maps: isotropic (p) and anisotropic (q) Pena et al., BJR 2006; Price et al., Eur Radiol 2004 Isotropic (p) and Anisotropic (q) Maps allow a better characterization of the diffusion features of tumoral and peritumoral areas Price et al., AJNR 2006; Price et al., Eur Radiol 2007; Wang et al., AJNR 2009

22
**Changes in glioma water diffusion values after chemotherapy: work in progress!!**

Changes in tumor water diffusion occur after successful treatment and can be attributed to changes in cell density. p q decrease of tissue infiltration p q increase of tissue infiltration Moffat et al., PNAS 2005 Hamstra et al., JCO 2008 Galban et al., TransOnc 2009 Aim of Study: to investigate whether changes in the Brownian motion of water within tumor tissue as quantified by using diffusion MRI could be used in the follow up of treated gliomas.

**Patients & methods y>x y<x x y x y RED BLUE p or q**

p value before chemoterapy p value after chemoterapy x y p value before chemoterapy p value after chemoterapy x y y>x y<x Let’s see to an example with respect to isotropic map: if we plot on the x axis the value of isotropic diffusion at baseline of a point inside the tumor and on y axis the value of the same point after therapy, when the value on y is greater than the value on x the point will be represented in red both on the graph and on the map, so red areas inside the tumor are characterized by an increase of isotropic diffusion and tissue infiltration; when the value on y is smaller than the value on x, the point will be represented in blue, and this indicate a reduction of isotropic diffusion and tissue infiltration. Points on green bisecting line indicate no change. RED BLUE p or q p or q 25

R.G., oligodendroglioma WHO II: fDM su mappa p (isotropia) dopo 6 cicli TMZ voxel blu: 1% voxel rossi: 30% I esame II esame The last patient I will show you is a low-grade astrocytoma located in left frontal lobe, who had a partial resection at 1st surgery; this is an example of failure of chemotherapy, as the patients progressed clinically and diffusion maps showed a marked increase of isotropy after temozolomide. All the points are located above the bisection line. progressione di malattia! progressione radiologica di malattia? stabilità clinica 28

**stabilità radiologica di malattia miglioramento clinico**

B.L., oligodendroglioma WHO II: fDM su mappa p (isotropia) dopo 6 cicli TMZ voxel blu: 7.3% voxel rossi: 6.1% I esame II esame Now I will show you some illustrative cases: this is a left posterior frontal and cingulate oligodendroglioma, you can see the diffusion isotropy maps and the corresponding FLAIR images. After five cycles of temozolomide, there is a reduction of isotropic diffusion in an area lining the anterior and lateral border of the tumor. The graph on the left show that inside the tumor there are some points in which isotropy is increased, and some others in which isotropy decreased; however, if we look at the graph on the right, that is the same of the left one in which point are classified according to the quantity or density of points in an area of the graph, we see that most of the points in which isotropy is changed are clustered under the bisection line, so most of points inside the tumor show a reduction of isotropic diffusion and tissue infiltration after therapy. stabilità radiologica di malattia miglioramento clinico 29

**B.L., ODG WHO II: confronto con neurofisiologia intraoperatoria**

sonda monopolare per la stimolazione intraoperatoria infiltrazione fibre CST infiltrazione fibre CST sonda bipolare per la stimolazione intraoperatoria Intraoperative subcortical stimulation of anterior and lateral areas evokes activation of leg motor fibers, and this activation was achieved by the use of bipolar probe and a lower current for stimulation, that indicates a reduced infiltration of fibers in the blue area depicted on the map. In the same patients, subcortical stimulation of a posterior and mesial frontal area depicted in red on the map required the use of monopolar probe for stimulation with a higher current and evokes activation of leg motor fibers. This region was characterized by an increase of isotropy over time and so a high infiltration of fibers. 30

31
Some conclusions: Tissue analysis with DTI could help the physicians in evaluating the chemotherapy responses. The p or q value variation could suggest a tumor progression or regression also for cases in which the tumor volume does not change. These preliminary results are in accordance with neurophysiological results and with intraoperative bioptic samples. 31

32
**Prospects: we are working to…**

unify in the scatter plot both the p and the q value variations study also the local maximum variation

**ICAdecompone il dataset nelle sue sottoparti indipendenti**

Metodi per la riduzione dello spazio delle feature ai fini della classificazione ICAdecompone il dataset nelle sue sottoparti indipendenti Dato il vettore x, mistura dei segnali originali s tramite una matrice di mixing A scopo della ICA è identificare una matrice di de-mixing W tale che le componenti del vettore in uscita siano quanto più statisticamente indipendenti

36
**ICA Per stimare una delle IC**

La combinazione lineare delle sorgenti indipendenti è più “gaussiana” delle componenti originarie e lo diventa “al minimo” quando z ha solo l’i-imo elemento non nullo: questo porta a scegliere W in modo da massimizzare la non-gaussianità di WTx

**Linear Discriminant Analysis**

Within-class scatter matrix Between-class scatter matrix projection matrix LDA computes a transformation that maximizes the between-class scatter while minimizing the within-class scatter: products of eigenvalues ! : scatter matrices of the y data after projection

39
**Linear Discriminant Analysis**

Does Sw-1 always exist? If Sw is non-singular, we can obtain a conventional eigenvalue problem by writing: In practice, Sw is often singular since the data are image vectors with large dimensionality while the size of the data set is much smaller (M << N ) Since Sb has at most rank C-1, the max number of eigenvectors with non-zero eigenvalues is C-1 (i.e., max dimensionality of sub-space is C-1)
