Quibim has developed an app to quantify the volumes of the right and left hippocampus, frontal lobes and temporal lobes, to help assess disease diagnosis and progression. The obtained values are framed in a normative database to be compared with healthy subjects of the same age and gender.
This app can be used to diagnose and monitor patients with Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment and frontotemporal dementia.
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
- Frontotemporal dementia
