fMRI made Easy
Integrated hardware and software solution for clinical fMRI
Introduction of fMRI as a clinical tool has added vital information to patient treatment and evaluation. fMRI is a sophisticated technology, but does it have to be complex and require considerable time and resources?
At NordicNeuroLab we believe that the clinical use of fMRI requires simple automated procedures, enabling a single technician to handle stimulus generation, image acquisition, data analysis and reporting and exporting of results.
NordicNeuroLab’s nordic fMRI Solution was developed to handle just that. It has been specifically designed to fit within the workflow of your hospital’s daily routine and has been tailored to integrate software and hardware components simply and effectively.
Stimulus Delivery Hardware
Fully integrated hardware for audio-visual stimulus presentation and response collection, compatible with MR scanners and a large variety of head coils from major vendors. Suitable for field strengths up to 3T.
This brand new, stunning 40” 4K UHD InroomViewingDevice was designed to provide an optimal MRI compatible monitor that satisfies the needs of both clinical and advanced scientific applications.
The headphones give a superb sound, replicating even minute details with incredible precision, thanks to the state-of-the-art electrostatic transducers.
The ResponseGrip is an MRI compatible subject response device developed for both clinical and research users.
One of the challenges in fMRI is synchronising stimulus presentation with MR image acquisition.
Analysis and Report Software
Intuitive interface guides the user through the process of loading and analyzing BOLD fMRI, DTI, Perfusion and structural data sets.
State-of-the-art 2D/3D visualization of white matter tracts together with BOLD fMRI activations on various underlays. Analyzed data can be exported to neuro navigation systems or to PACS. Runs on standard PC or laptop, no special hardware required.
Display a large number of conditions in the same view, both in 2D and 3D. Threshold interactively, select individual colors and adjust opacity. Use VOI-tools to inspect the time-intensity curves for dynamic data sets.
Use multiple VOIs to isolate fiber groups and explore connectivity in 3D. Define individual colors. Fiber groups can be presented in 2D/3D and exported for neuro navigation or saved to PACS.
By introducing a clinical Perfusion Module we have taken nordicBrainEx to the next level. Perfusion analysis includes normalization, leakage correction and vessel removal, providing fast generation of Blood volume (CBV), Blood flow (CBF), Mean Transit Time (MTT), Time to Peak (TTP), Leakage map (Ktrans) and Vessel Mask.
Paradigm and Workflow Software
Intuitive interface and instructions guide the user through the process of presenting stimuli to the patient. Included library of readytouse standard clinical paradigms allows the physician to test perceptual, motor and language functions.
NordicAktiva is a stimulus presentation and workflow software which controls the presentation of stimuli during fMRI exams and has been designed specifically with the clinical user in mind.
