Measuring the right signal
Methodological issues are of crucial importance in brain imaging. Accordingly, our group investigates influences of normalization procedures for FDG-PET data on diagnosis and differential diagnosis of dementia. Moreover, we examine the impact of different analysis approaches on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data, namely with regard to voxel-based morphometry (VBM).
