Neuroquant is an FDA approved tool for accurate brain volume assessment, typically run on a T1 volumetric MRI brain imaging profile.
A 3D T1 Saggital MP-RAGE protocol sequence is required to run the imaging report. NeuroQuant is preferred by Dr Shoemaker in his work reporting on atrophy and oedema changes in the brain relating to biotoxin exposure.
See sample report for further details.
