Quantifying neuro-degeneration of the Basal Ganglia in Huntington's Disease

Principal Investigator: Faisal Beg
MSc Student: Ali Khan

The caudate and the putamen are deep nuclei in the brain that are known to undergo atrophy in patients with Huntington\'s Disease. We are working on tools to segment these nuclei from MRI images using LDDMM and quantify the the change in shape and form over time as the disease progresses.
