MICCAI 2023 Daily - Tuesday

Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder affecting millions worldwide, has long been a focus of research to improve diagnostics and treatment. In this paper, Favour presents a method capable of deriving neuroimaging biomarkers associated with disturbances in gait –a common symptom in individuals with Parkinson’s disease. However, the significance of this work extends beyond the laboratory. Favour is determined to make a tangible impact on clinical practice. “A big piece of the work is an explainability framework, meaning that it’s not only computational for how other medical physicists can 3 DAILY MICCAI Tuesday An Explainable Geometric-Weighted Graph Attention Network for Identifying Functional Networks Associated with Gait Impairment Favour Nerrise is a PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University under the supervision of Ehsan Adeli and Kilian Pohl. Her work proposes a new method to derive neuroimaging biomarkers associated with disturbances in gait for people withParkinson’s disease and has been accepted for an oral and poster. She speaks to us ahead of her presentations this morning. Favour Nerrise
