Again, home-made innovation is made news; this time, thanks to a team formed by members of the Research Institute in Bioengineering and Technology oriented to the Human Being of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (I3BH-UPV) and INSCANNER (Hospital Clnica Benidorm group) that has developed a couple of capable solutions to help the early diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases and the monitoring and treatment of brain tumors.
Going deeper into the matter, it has been known that it is BRAIM and MergeBRAIM, two software tools that offer health professionals the possibility of making the best decisions in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis or Alzheimer's.
Sources of the study house in question have highlighted that BRAIM and MergeBRAIM – currently used only for scientific purposes – are part of the results of the BRAIM-Advanced Medical Imaging Techniques for the brain project, led by INSCANNER and funded by the Center for the Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI) of the Government of Spain.
However, as far as each one goes, in the same way it has been known that BRAIM – from 3D resonance images of the patient with neurodegenerative disease – quickly and accurately calculates the volumes of certain brain regions of interest clinical In addition to this, it classifies the results of each patient according to a control-database generated by the same research team.
For its part, MergeBRAIM – to be presented in June during the "Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS 2015)", in Barcelona – is able to merge up to six different imaging modalities, offering as a final result structural, metabolic and functional information of the Each patient's brain in a single image. It allows loading and analyzing different imaging tests of the same patient in the program, such as CT scans, functional resonances and PETs, among others.
