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.
