6 Preliminary Phase - Survey of literature - Certified extraction of landmarks (Boccardi et al., J Alzheimers Dis, in press)

7 Preliminary Phase

8 - Survey of literature - Certified extraction of landmarks (Boccardi et al., J Alzheimers Dis, in press) - Operationalization of differences (Segmentation Units, SUs) - Quantification of relevant features of SUs (reliability, impact on hippo volume, informative value for AD-related atrophy) - Quantitative data used for Delphi Questionnaires

13 Delphi method First round: Questions: Choose based on experience and helped by the quantitative data; Motivate answers. Space for free comments/criticism/suggestions. Second round: Feedback about answers and reasons; Level of agreement about reasons converging towards most frequent answers. We answer previous comments / criticism / suggestions. Space for new free comments/criticism/suggestions.

14 Delphi Panel – Landmarks Statistics by Patrizio Pasqualetti, Rome

15 Delphi Panel – I Round

16 Delphi I Round – Alveus/Fimbria Inclusion P= %69% P = exact p at Binomial Test (2x2) 0 = Exclude Alveus/Fimbria 1 = Include Alveus/Fimbria Frequency

17 Delphi II Round – Alveus/Fimbria Inclusion 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement P 1 < P 2 =0.021 Median = 9 19% 81% P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test ( 5) (2x2) Frequency

18 Delphi I Round – Which criterion for subiculum

19 Delphi I Round – Subiculum P= % 6% 38% 56% 0 = No subiculum 1 = Oblique line criterion 2 = Horizontal line criterion 3 = Morphology criterion P at Fisher’s Exact Test (2x4) Frequency

20 Delphi II Round – Subiculum Morphology 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement * Explicitly expresses no strong objection for morphology P 1 = P 2 =0.057 Median = 7 19% (12%) 69% * P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test ( 5) (2x2) Frequency

21 Delphi Panel I Round

22

23 Delphi I Round – Tail P= % 25% 69% 1 = No tail 2 = Crura criterion 3 = Crura+End Tail criterion P at Fisher’s Exact Test (2x3) Frequency

24 Delphi II Round – Tail End 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement P 1 = P 2 =0.035 Median = 8 19% (6%) 75% P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test ( 5) (2x2) Frequency

25 Delphi Panel – Preliminary Results P=0.021 P=0.057 P=0.035 Covers 100% of hippocampus proper Captures 100% of AD-related atrophy P for agreement among panelists) Intra-rater (BS-BS): Inter-rater (BS-BS): Preliminary ICC (BS-Mayo-LONI): 0.95

26 Delphi – Preliminary Results This model includes some tissue which is not hippocampus proper: - A/F is white matter - Tail end may include some vestigial tissue - The medial boundary of the body may include some entorhinal cortex

27 Delphi II Round – Harmonized Hippo P 1 < P 2 =0.001 Median = 8 6% 6% 88% 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement § * Panelist who voted for different criterion for every landmark, all reasons reported for other panelists § Panelist who has problem to agree because some boundaries not discussed (we only questioned landmark heterogeneities in the available literature) * P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test ( 5) (2x2) Frequency

28 Delphi Panel - Segmentation Modalities

29 Delphi I round – Disambituating Hippo/Amy in 3D P= %88% 0 = (sometimes) not possible to disambiguate with 3D visualization * 1 = Possible to disambiguate with 3D visualization * Suggested editing in 3D P = exact p at Binomial Test (2x2) * Frequency

30 Delphi II Round – Disambiguating Hippo/Amy in 3D P 1 < P 2 < Median = 8 0% 0% 100% 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test ( 5) (2x2) Frequency

31 Delphi I round – Disambiguating Vestigial in 3D P=1 50% 0 = not possible (or opportune) 1 = possible (or opportune) * Proposed again into two questions in the II round P = exact p at Binomial Test (2x2) Frequency

32 Delphi II Round – Possibility to exclude vestigial tissue in 3D 0 = No 1 = Yes P = exact p at Binomial Test (2x2) P= % 56% Frequency

33 Delphi II Round – Opportunity to exclude vestigial tissue (with 3D) 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement P 1 = P 2 = Median = % 12% 69% P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test ( 5) (2x2) Frequency

34 Delphi I Round – Internal CSF P 2 = % 44% 25% 19% 1 = Include CSF in segmentation 2 = Exclude when connected * 3 = Exclude always 4 = Other ** * Criterion to be sure that it is CSF ** Should use other criterion to be sure it is CSF, then exclude P 1 for exclusion (somehow) P 1 =0.004 P 1 = exact p at Binomial Test (2x2: 1 vs 2-4) P 2 = Fisher’s exact test (2x4) Frequency

35 P 1 = P 2 = Median = 7 31% 6% 63% 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement Delphi II Round – Exclude internal csf when connected P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test (2x2) Frequency

36 Delphi I-II Round – Not visible structures Trace only if you see, but train to look for tissue there?

37 Delphi I Round – Plane of tracing 1 = Long axis of the hippocampus 2 = AC-PC 3 = Other * * Both are fine P= % 31% 19% P at Fisher’s Exact Test (2x3) Frequency

38 Delphi II Round – Hippo long axis 1 = Minimum agreement TO 9 = Maximum agreement * * both AC-PC or long axis hippo are ok P 1 = P 2 = Median = 8 6% 31% 62% P 1 = Fisher’s exact test (2x9) P 2 = exact p at Binomial Test (2x2) Frequency

39 Discussion - Landmarks Alveus/Fimbria: significant agreement for inclusion (not Hippo proper, but > reliability, and some increase in sensitivity). Subiculum: non significant agreement for morphology; Morphology > Horizontal, but further round needed; Possible inclusion of non hippocampal tissue would apply to both criteria. Tail End: (almost significant) agreement for inclusion of the whole tail; Harmonized Hippo: significant agreement for inclusion of all SUs and using the morphology criterion for subiculum. OK 3° round

40 Disambiguation hippo/amy in 3D: significant agreement; Suggestion of “editing” in 3D will be considered in further steps. Disambiguation of vestigial tissue: no agreement on the possibility or opportunity to exclude it from the whole hippocampal structure. CSF exclusion: significant agreement on exclusion. no agreement on using the “connection” criterion to be sure. Suggestions will be used to seek consensus on more articulated ways to recognise for sure the CSF and thus exclude it. Discussion – Segmentation Modalities OK OK + 3° round

41 Segmentation of not visible structures: agreement on inclusion of tissue only if visible Plane of tracing: significant agreement on long axis of the hippocampus. Further rounds will better specify (left, right, mean?) Discussion – Segmentation Modalities OK OK + 3° round

42 - Landmarks not discussed: because no disagreement in the literature. -Partial volumes: interesting issue, proposed to panelists, but only 2 answered. Will formulate an item based on these 2 in next trial. Discussion – Other Issues

43 - Multitracer (free; 3D simultaneous visualization; sub-voxel segmentation and volume computation; tracing of different labels on each slice) - Possibility of editing in 3D may be helpful -Please send your suggestions about a free software fulfilling all (or more!) of these needs - Zoom requirements are specific to this project due to common image processing, but do not necessarily apply to the future requirements for the harmonized protocol Discussion – Software
