STOCKHOLM, Aug. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The data generated from a unique single sequence on the Siemens Healthineers MRI system and SyMRI software provide quantitative MRI, tissue specific parametric maps (R1, T1, R2, T2 and PD), multiple contrast-weighted images and tissue volumes. This supports a faster scan time while providing more information to the clinician.
The SyMRI NEURO package is the first on the market to include measurements and segmentation of myelin-correlated volumes. Quantification of myelin may be useful to monitor patients with neurodegenerative disorders such as multiple sclerosis and dementia. This biomarker could also be of value in the developing pediatric brain or in psychological disorders such as autism, attention deficit disorder, and schizophrenia.
