Machine Learning to Assess Brain Injury in HIV Patients

pic for LC_EH R21Although HIV-infected individuals can be treated and have normal life expectancies, up to half continue to suffer from cognitive problems that are often difficult to evaluate. This exploratory study aims to use machine learning to combine different types of brain imaging and clinical data to generate an objective and reproducible approach to assess brain injury associated with HIV-infection. Our approach may provide a useful biomarker to evaluate brain injury and monitor treatments in these patients in both research and clinical settings.
