Fully automatic processing, visualization and quantification of brain scans

AUTOMATIC AND ACCURATE DEFORMABLE REGISTRATION 
At the core of the application is an advanced registration algorithm that brings the patient's brain into alignment with the chosen normal template. The registration algorithm is a proven, fully automatic, deformable registration method utilizing a novel adaptive principle-component template to accurately align scans for quantitative analysis (1).

REFERENCE DATABASES FOR ALL COMMON SPECT AND PET TRACERS
The neurology application from Hermes Medical Solutions features normal reference databases for all common tracers: 18F FDG, DaTscan™, Amyvid™, Vizamyl™, Neuraceq™ and cerebral perfusion SPECT (99mTc-ECD, 99mTc-HMPA0). This provides personalized comparisons with healthy controls.

LOCALIZATION OF ABNORMAL REGIONS AND COMPLETE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS 
Results can be reported for pre-defined anatomical regions, or as a z-score map showing you the exact localization of abnormal areas. Hermia Neurology provides both voxel-based and region-based analysis of brain scans utilizing an integrated brain atlas as well as 3D stereotactic surface projections.

Voxel-based analysis performs voxel-by-voxel comparison of the patient brain scan with a template of healthy controls. Areas of statistically significant difference from normal are visualized as color coded overlays.

Region-based analysis provides quantification of brain anatomical regions with statistics calculated on a region-by-region basis. The patient's regional statistics are compared to those from healthy controls and regional z-scores are presented in a table.


EASY TO INTERPRET 3D SURFACE PROJECTION FOR REFERRING NEUROLOGIST
3D stereotactic surface projections allow for easy understanding of results for your referring neurologist or family physician, as well as facilitating patient communication. It is also possible to fuse an externally acquired patient MR scan with the functional deviation image for anatomical guidance.
