NeuroQuant is a unique software that analyzes a brain MRI to aid in the early detection and treatment of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.

NeuroQuant compares a patient’s brain measurements to the measurements of people with healthy brains who are of the same age, sex and skull size. This software can also be used to monitor changes in the brain over time to determine if and how quickly a disease is progressing.
