Combined Analysis of Brain Magnetic Resonance Images Towards Patient Specific Diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

Principal Investigator:
  • Graham Little, University of Alberta
  • University of Alberta

Project Overview

Mr. Little’s current focus is on building computer software that can identify altered brain development patterns in fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) using brain images. The aim is to create an objective tool that can detect atypical brain development and potentially monitor the effects of interventions. His goal is to be able to identify a brain signature of FASD that can help in diagnosis of prenatal exposure to alcohol, making it easier to provide the unique help and resources affected children and their families need.
