Neuroscience Centers Select Neurognostics fMRI System

December 19, 2007 – Neurognostics will be installing their Functional MR Imaging (fMRI) system at Hoag Hospital in Pasadena, CA and North Shore-LIJ Health System in New York, providing the centers with data acquisition hardware and workflow software,

In addition, the Neurognostics fMRI system also includes an extensive library of stimulation paradigms that are designed to map a variety of cognitive and motor functions, including memory, reasoning, language, and perceptual abilities.

Functional MRI allows physicians to locate brain function in the context of performing particular perceptual, cognitive, and/or sensorimotor tasks. Along with a variety of Central Nervous System (CNS) research applications, clinicians are using fMRI to assist with neurosurgical planning. With the ability to integrate processed fMRI images into neuronavigation systems, Neurognostics provides physicians with the increased freedom to view functional brain images both in advance of the surgery and within the operating room.

Machine Learning IDs Markers to Help Predict Alzheimer's

Neurologists use structural and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify changes in brain tissue (both gray and white matter) that are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The MRI images are analyzed using morphometry and tractography techniques, which detect changes in the shape and dimensions of the brain and in the tissue microstructure, respectively. In this example, the images show the normal brain of an elderly patient. Image courtesy of Jiook Cha.
