Overview

Early detection of neurodegenerative disease is crucial to lessening the burden and cost of these diseases. The neuropathology of dementias can precede clinical symptoms by several years, but the challenge has been finding a way to accurately diagnose dementia as early as possible.

Patterns are an important part of differential diagnosis for neurodegenerative disease. The more sensitive an application is to detecting and visualizing patterns, the more quickly patients can be put on the correct treatment pathway. Q.Brain standardizes individual brain shapes through registration to a standard atlas while preserving functional information. Numeric uptake values are added to reports and compared to a normal patient database, since visual inspections or volume-of-interest techniques may not be sufficient for accurate diagnosis.

ESTABLISH CARE EARLY AND ACCURATELY

Provide specific indications for the differential diagnosis
of dementia, traumatic brain injuries, epilepsy and
other complex brain dysfuntion

Improve communication among physicians on care
teams
, enhancing the value of nuclear medicine in the management of complex brain diseases

Give patients and their families the peace of mind of a definitive diagnosis, eliminating the frustration caused
by endless diagnostic testing
