Neuro Quantification

What is Neuro Quantification?

Neuro Quantification is a type of post-MRI assessment that measures sections of the brain and compares them to the average measurements database of healthy, age-related peers to determine if there are signs of early Alzheimer's disease, dementia or other neurodegenerative disorders.

Common Questions

  • Why would my physician recommend a Neuro Quantification?

    Your physician may recommend a Neuro Quantification if you suffer from memory loss or other cognitive impairments.

  • How does a Neuro Quantification work?

    A Neuro Quantification is performed in conjunction with a traditional Brain MRI. After the MRI, one of our specially trained Radiologists will use your MR images to segment the images and measure the size of various parts of your brain. These measurements will be compared to a national database of your same-aged peers to determine if your measurements fall within the "normal" range. If not, it may be an indication for Alzheimer's disease, dementia or other neurodegenerative disorders.

  • What should I expect during a Neuro Quantification?

    Neuro Quantification is done post-MRI. You will prepare for your Brain MRI as instructed and no additional preparation is needed for the Neuro Quantification.

  • What happens after the Neuro Quantification is complete?

    When the Neuro Quantification is complete, our Radiologist will interpret your study and send all of the measurements and a final report to your physician who will discuss the results with you and develop a treatment plan.
