CorTechs Labs Collaborating with Olea Medical for Quantifying Brain Volume Loss

May 31, 2016 — CorTechs Labs and Olea Medical announced a partnership agreement to offer NeuroQuant in Olea Sphere, Olea Medical’s suite of imaging applications.

The partnership will enrich physicians’ resources for accessing and quantifying neurodegeneration. NeuroQuant from CorTechs provides automatic, accurate and consistent measurements of brain structures through 3-D T1 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This allows neurologists and radiologists to easily review, assess, quantify and monitor brain volume loss and changes over time as compared to normative values.

NeuroQuant is U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-leared, CE marked and Health Canada licensed for measuring brain volumes and quantifying brain atrophy. It is used in the assessment of neurodegeneration, such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis as well as brain volume changes caused by brain trauma.

Olea Sphere is an image processing software package intended for picture archive, post-processing and communication. It helps standardize both viewing and analysis capabilities of functional and dynamic imaging datasets acquired with MRI and computed tomography (CT) across vendors. It features image viewing, analysis and processing of most complex MR sequences as well as longitudinal analysis of multiple time points. Olea Sphere is compliant with the DICOM standard and Windows or Linux operating systems. The software runs on any standard off-the-shelf workstation or it can be used through thin deployment.

New recommendations will help provide more reliable, reproducible results for MRI-based measurements of cartilage degeneration in the knee, helping to slow down disease and prevent progression to irreversible osteoarthritis, according to a special report published in the journal Radiology

Knee cartilage compartments with anatomic labels implemented in lateral (left side), central (middle), and medial (right side) MRI obtained with an intermediate weighted fat-saturated fast-spin-echo sequence (top row) and a spin-lattice relaxation time constant in rotating frame (T1r) magnetization-prepared angle-modulated partitioned k-space spoiled gradient echo snapshots sequence (bottom row, T1r maps). Study was performed without administration of intravenous gadolinium-based contrast material. The lateral femur (LF)/medial femur (MF) and lateral tibia (LT)/medial tibia (MT) can be further divided into subcompartments on the basis of meniscus anatomy according to Eckstein et al.
