Princeton Radiology Introduces AI-Assisted MRI Brain Imaging with icobrain
Delays in initial diagnosis or the monitoring of multiple sclerosis, dementia, and seizure disorders can adversely impact treatment effectiveness and, in turn, the patient’s quality of life.
Now, however, Princeton Radiology provides an FDA-approved resource combining advanced diagnostic imaging, radiological expertise, and artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate diagnosis and monitoring for these conditions and expedite treatment: icobrain, developed by a company called icometrix.
icobrain for Multiple Sclerosis
For MS, icobrain helps physicians adjust treatments four times faster. It accomplishes this by using AI technology to analyze MRI images and compare them to normalized population samples and the patient’s past images to identify disease progression markers, including:
Changes in brain volume
Increasing white matter abnormalities
The benefits are clear: physicians can initiate treatment earlier and adjust treatment sooner to support better outcomes.
icobrain for Dementia
icobrain supports a faster determination of whether a patient’s dementia symptoms, such as memory loss, are caused by:
Another condition such as vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, or frontotemporal dementia
By comparing brain MRI images to samples from a healthy population and the patient’s past scans, icobrain empowers radiologists to report a clear diagnostic answer. This equips the referring provider, such as a neurologist or primary care physician, to initiate more timely and precise treatment—to the benefit of the patient’s quality of life.
icobrain for Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders
Princeton Radiology’s team can use icobrain to uncover abnormality patterns by:
Comparing hippocampal asymmetry to an age- and sex-matched normative healthy population
Assessing juxtacortical abnormalities indicative of cortical malformations
Since icobrain can be charged using standard diagnostic and procedure codes for brain MRI scans, insurance coverage may be available for many patients, and Princeton Radiology can work with referring physician offices to preauthorize coverage
