Determining Multimodal Imaging Biomarkers for Parkinson's Disease

DuBois Bowman, PhD, Chair, Department of Biostatistics, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University

4 pm, 1 Park Ave, 7th Floor

Abstract: Despite considerable progress in understanding Parkinson's disease (PD), reliable biomarkers are still lacking.  The combination of non-invasive neuroimaging data reflecting both functional and structural characteristics of the brain, clinical information, and other biologic measures provides an unprecedented opportunity for cross-cutting investigations that stand to gain deeper insights into PD.  As a first step, we seek to identify functional or anatomical properties of the brain that reliably distinguish PD patients from healthy control (HC) subjects. We develop a Bayesian statistical modeling framework that incorporates imaging data from different modalities and yields classifications for subjects, as either PD patients or as HCs.  The model accounts for spatial correlations between different brain locations, defined hierarchically to capture correlations globally between brain regions of an anatomical parcellation, between subregions of each region, and between voxels within each subregion.  We apply our model to data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), resting-state functional MRI, and clinical variables.  We also consider a penalized regression approach to distinguish PD patients from HC subjects.  In both cases, we demonstrate the ability to isolate neural characteristics that reflect accurate signatures of PD and that, upon further investigation, may serve as useful early stage PD biomarkers.
