A WEB-BASED PLATFORM FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF FRONTO-SUBCORTICAL CONNECTIVITY DISRUPTIONS OF BRAIN DISORDERS
Lack of rapid and efficient diagnosis & typing of brain disorders
Structural and functional MRI-based biomarkers platform for brain disorder identification
- Easy-to-use web-based platform to identify biomarkers
- Specific neuropsychiatric symptoms-guided brain disorder identification
- First diagnosis for effective treatment selection
This technology will be a valuable tool for the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of neuropsychiatric disorders, such as major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, substance and behavioral addictions, Parkinson's or Huntington's disease. It will also allow the classification of individuals according to brain malfunction.
This tool could be exploited by clinicians, radiologists and researchers, and it could be extrapolated to other brain areas and disorders.
A specific set of neuroimaging indices have been defined and validated for a particular group of symptoms, related to neuropsychiatric disorders. An identification-classification algorithm by making use of these indices is being developed. Once this is done, the whole product will be implemented at the cloud as a web-based platform.
This technology has already been developed and commercialized for other specific disorders (such as Parkinson’s disease).
