"Philips and SyntheticMR Collaborate to Pioneer AI-Driven Quantitative Brain Imaging for Enhanced Neurology Care

Saturday, March 02, 2024

Royal Philips, a renowned leader in health technology, has joined forces with SyntheticMR, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) software solutions company based in Linköping, Sweden, to introduce Smart Quant Neuro 3D. This innovative technology marks a significant advancement in objective decision support for diagnosing and assessing therapy for brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and dementia.

At #ECR2024, Philips is collaborating with healthcare providers to enhance productivity and improve access to sustainable healthcare. Smart Quant Neuro 3D offers automated measurement of various brain tissues, aiding in decision support for brain diseases, progression assessment, and therapy monitoring.

By combining Philips' AI-based SmartSpeed image-reconstruction technology and 3D SyntAc clinical application with SyntheticMR's SyMRI NEURO 3D quantitative tissue assessment software, healthcare providers gain powerful tools for more confident diagnostics, ultimately benefiting patients. Philips holds an exclusive agreement with SyntheticMR, making it the sole provider of SyMRI NEURO 3D capability on MR scanners.

Smart Quant Neuro 3D utilizes AI to deliver precise 3D segmentation and volume measurement of brain tissue, including white matter, gray matter, cerebrospinal fluid, and myelin. This quantitative data aids physicians in diagnosis and treatment planning, allowing for proactive management of neurological conditions and optimized therapeutic outcomes.

Quantitative measurement of myelin loss is particularly crucial in progressive brain diseases like multiple sclerosis, enabling clinicians to assess progression, evaluate treatment efficacy, and streamline the imaging process for patients.

Furthermore, leveraging Philips' AI-based MR SmartSpeed reconstruction technology, Smart Quant Neuro 3D enhances scanning efficiency and radiology department throughput. SyntheticMR's SyMRI NEURO 3D software enables automatic analysis of imaging data, providing accurate segmentation and volume measurement of tissue in less than 10 seconds of post-processing.
