MRI with 3D Post-Processing Quantifies Brain Atrophy
Identifying neurodegeneration is now more reliable and objective than ever before. A standard Brain MRI used in conjunction with NeuroQuant® - 3D volumetric post-process software - allows our subspecialized radiologists to provide quantified measurements of patients’ brain structures.
Assessing Neurological Disease
NeuroQuant® segments and measures volumes of the hippocampus, ventricles and other brain structures and compares the volumes to standard norms, based on the patient’s age, gender and cranial volume. This information helps providers assess neurological conditions and neurodegenerative diseases such as:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Traumatic brain injury
- Multiple Sclerosis

How Does NeuroQuant® Work?
For the patient, a NeuroQuant® exam is a Brain MRI scan. The technologist performing the scan sends the data to a secure server where the NeuroQuant® software automatically identifies and segments multiple brain structures.
The software then measures the volumes of the structures and compares the information to a normative database adjusted for age, gender and cranial volume.
The NeuroQuant® software generates unique reports providing greater visual and quantitative information for the radiologist reading your MRI scan and your provider evaluating treatment options.
