Progressive Radiology Offers NeuroQuant Product to Referring Community

Posted on: 06/28/2014

Progressive Radiology is pleased to offer the NeuroQuant product to our referring community. NeuroQuant is the first FDA-cleared volumetric analysis solution for quantitative detection of brain atrophy suitable for routine clinical use. NeuroQuant brings sophisticated, accurate, and fully automated MRI post-processing capabilities to the physician's desktop. This software provides neurologists, radiologists, and clinical researchers with a convenient and cost-effective means to quantify the volume of the hippocampus and other structures.

NeuroQuant is a powerful tool for evaluating patients, providing critical information for the assessment of neurological conditions and primary neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. The analysis complements and extends visual inspection of raw images to help with clinical assessment, to monitor disease progression, and to assess treatment effectiveness.

Progressive Radiology will offer the NeuroQuant solution at the following sites:

The exam itself needs no preparation, is painless (no injection), and is safe. Your images will be interpreted by our team of radiologists and reports sent to your medical provider.

NeuroQuant® Reports:

Age-Related Atrophy Report contains the absolute and relative volumes of the hippocampus and inferior lateral ventricles, structures that typically show significant atrophy in dementia patients. The resulting values are automatically compared to age-appropriate reference distributions. The interpreting physician can select representative slices and add a comment in the provided text box to be included in the report.

General Morphometry Report provides the absolute and relative volumes for the right- and left-side of the following brain structures: Forebrain Parenchyma, Cortical Gray Matter, Lateral Ventricle, Inferior Lateral Ventricle, Hippocampus, Amygdala, Caudate, Putamen, Pallidum, Thalamus and Cerebellum. It also provides an Asymmetry Index (defined as the difference between left and right volumes divided by their mean).

NeuroQuant® Features Include:

Segmentation of MRIs of the whole brain and regional volumetric quantification of structures in less than 15min with no user intervention.

Automatic Correction for image artifacts including gradient nonlinearities and RF field inhomogeneities.

Atlas-Based image registration, anatomical segmentation, and volumetric quantification of the hippocampus, ventricles and other brain structures.

High Validity -- Automated segmentation shown to be highly consistent with that performed by human expert neuroanatomist High Reliability -- Making results ideal for longitudinal follow-up and tracking of disease.

Numerical Results are automatically compared to normative data to highlight atrophy greater than expected from normal aging.

Medial Temporal lobe volumes from NeuroQuant shown to be sensitive to MCI and early AD in multi-vendor, multi-site MRI data.

Ask your medical provider today if you are a candidate for this screening. Schedule your appointment on-line or by calling our office. Please bring your prescription with you at the time of your exam.
