Project Description


We want to explore an imaging genetics model and identify (potentially continuous) phenotypes in stroke patients. Combined with the WMH segmentation, we will start with WMH-based imaging phenotypes.

Approach, Plan

  • Run through the WMH pipeline.
  • Construct distribution map of WMH
  • Explore clustering of WMH
  • Expand/Explore current imaging genetics model developed in our lab with above phenotypes and stroke dataset genotypes.


  • Almost completed the WMH pipeline.
  • Discussed with several members about white matter hyperintensity and our images
  • Discussed about possibility of processing imaging genetics models on the web to facilitate easier interaction for biologists.
  • This project is mostly explorative at this point. We got good feedback, and with the WMH pipeline almost done, we are about to explore several WMH-related phenotypes with our new imaging genetics model.
