MD Imaging Now Offers Advanced MRI Neuro Analysis
August 12, 2013, Poughkeepsie, NY – MD Imaging now offers MRI Volume Quantification. This is a new tool that provides volumetric data on the hippocampus and lateral ventricles; structures that have been shown to be affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.
The NeuroQuant Solution from Invivo provides us with enhanced diagnostic capabilities that can help in the assessment of patients with Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy and other neurological disorders. For Alzheimer’s, the area’s health care practitioners will have quantitative measures of brain atrophy to consider along with other clinical and biomarker data when making a diagnosis or when monitoring disease progression. NeuroQuant provides automatic labeling, visualization and volumetric quantification of segmentable brain structures from a set of MR images.
DynaSuite Neuro by Invivo provides a platform to help transition advanced neuro applications from the research environment to the day-to-day clinical practice. It offers the workflow and productivity which allow our radiologists to perform advanced neuro analysis.
NeuroQuant takes high-resolution 3D T1-weighted, sagittal, non-contrast-enhanced MRI scans of the brain and automatically processes the data for easy physician review. It returns a new, full-volume spatially corrected and anatomically labeled dataset with two printable patient reports containing the absolute and relative volume of the hippocampus, temporal horn, and other structures.
“We are confident that this new technology will improve the service we provide to our patients struggling with neurological cognitive disorders,” explains Dr. Gary Grossman, Medical Director of MD Imaging.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. An estimated 5.3 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease. This figure includes 5.1 million people aged 65 and older and 200,000 individuals under age 65 who have younger-onset Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that there are 500,000 Americans younger than 65 with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
