Image Analysis Group and Dr. Arne Fischmann present at 10th UK Neuromuscular Translational Research Conference 22-23 March 2017
Mark Hinton, CTO of Image Analysis Group, will be attending the the 10th UK Neuromuscular Translational Research Conference at the Institute of Child Health, 30 Guildford Street London, 22-23 March 2017.
He and Image Analysis Group collaborator Dr. Arne Fischmann, Chief Physician Neuroradiology at Hirslanden Klinik St.Anna, Basel will be presenting a poster on advanced image processing of MRI in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Towards objective and reproducible measures of thigh muscle fat fraction in patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
The research was carried out by Dr Fischmann and his team in conjunction with Image Analysis scientists, using Dynamika, our software platform certified for clinical research and medical use. The work demonstrates an automated approach to calculating changes in muscle fat fraction that correlates well with the much more time consuming manual segmentation of the muscles. This shows that quantitative MRI has an important role to play in clinical assessment of neuromuscular diseases and as a biomarker for disease progression in clinical trials.
