abstract

For the neurodegenerative disease dementia improved diagnostic accuracy is required for clinical research and successful treatment of patients. Since algorithms of medical imaging and related elds such as pattern recognition and classi cation play a major role, research in computer science aims to maximize its value for analyzing data of biomarkers. This work aims to improve some biomarkers, e.g. by anatomical subdivision, to perform classi cation with multiple biomarkers and proposes a new approach to labeling anatomical structures of the cortex.
