Quibim has developed this app to calculate the volume of brain tissues and morphometry to help classify disease and assess its progression.
The tool offers quantitative information on underlying central nervous system disorders, by calculating both the absolute and relative (normalized to intra-cranial volume – ICV) volumes of the grey matter, white matter and cerebrospinal fluid as well as their detailed values in 184 regions. These values are framed in a normative database to be compared with healthy subjects of the same age and gender.
The app can be used in the management of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and other diseases.
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
