Abstract

In this work we look at the statistical distribution of geometrical observables computed in volumes centered on the right and left hippocampus in MR images. The observable distributions are then correlated with the clinical diagnosis in patients potentially affected by the Alzheimer disease. We then evaluate the discrimination ability of the geometrical observables combined with the MMSE test results.
