Neuropsychiatric Diseases Imaging Biomarkers
Utilize leading imaging biomarkers to gauge brain structure, disease evolution, and therapy impact, all within an accessible and unified platform.
New Insights for New Therapies
Advanced neuroimaging analysis techniques offer a cutting-edge approach to extracting and interpreting imaging biomarkers from both functional and structural brain images. This innovation is unlocking deeper insights into neuropsychiatric disorders, enabling a more nuanced and comprehensive understanding of these complex conditions. By quantifying specific characteristics of the brain, such as region-specific volume and connectivity between diverse areas, these biomarkers serve as critical tools in diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy planning. This precise approach to brain analysis represents a paradigm shift in the study of neuropsychiatric disorders, fostering more targeted interventions and personalized care.
Patterns of Whole Brain Structural Connectivity
Graph theoretical analysis of structural connectivity MRI reveals highly connected hubs in brain networks, crucial for network functioning. This topological insight enhances understanding of the pathophysiology of psychiatric diseases like schizophrenia, affecting specific local or global brain networks. (30, 31, 32)
