Read what clinicians have to say about SyMRI
”With SyMRI, we get new opportunities to monitor and measure disease progression using quantifiable data. This allows better follow-up of our MS patients.”
— Sven Ekholm, Professor and Senior Advisor to the Gothenburg University / BOIC, Sweden
”SyMRI allows us to quantify neurodegeneration in MS. We have spent many years studying the disease process of MS and we will now be able to better quantify this. SyMRI can be used to assess disease severity and evaluate treatment effects, which is very valuable.”
— Jan Lycke, Associate Professor of neurology at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Sweden
“Because of the way the brain develops, a true strength of synthetic imaging that could be particularly useful in pediatric cases is the possibility of tuning image contrast afterwards and generating contrasts that usually are not acquired. The ability to create multiple diagnostic sequences from a single acquisition may allow for substantial time savings and increased throughput.”
– Blaise V. Jones, M.D., Chief of Neuroradiology, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
”I am convinced Synthetic MRI is the way MRI is performed in the future, I show it in all my presentations.”
– Dr. Anders Persson, MD. Director Center for Image Science and Visualization Linköping, Sweden
”Synthetic MRI is included in our standard protocol for MS, hydrocephalus and dementia patients. It provides us reliable volumetric information in a fast and easy way.”
– Dr. Richard Birgander, MD, PhD, Senior consultant neuroradiologist. Umeå University Hospital, Sweden.
”Quantitative MR, as provided by Synthetic MRI, holds promise for new valuable diagnostic applications of MRI and we are therefore interested in this evolution.”
– Dr. Per Thunberg, PhD. Department of Medical Physics, Örebro University Hospital, Sweden.
”We were looking for a good method to find and quantify clinical markers of the brain that may indicate cognitive ability for an aging group. Especially interesting is to see whether there are structural differences in the brains of people who perform above compared to individuals who perform far below what can be expected on earlier cognitive tests. Synthetic MRI is a very promising method that enables us to more clearly visualize these potential structural differences.”
– Dr. Egill Rostrup, Chief physician, MSc, MD, DMSc. Glostrup Hospital, Denmark.
”Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) generally has been about looking at pictures and trying to interpret them. SyMRI finally provides us with objective numbers.”
– Dr Anders Svenningsson, MD, PhD, Neurologist. Umeå University Hospital, Sweden.
”One possible advantage with Synthetic MRI is a shortening of study time as only one series of images is needed to obtain the required type of images. Another interesting potential with Synthetic MRI is that tissue characteristics, which are used to create contrast in MR images, are determined through a quantitative method. We aim to evaluate these possibilities.”
– Dr. Wolfgang Krauss, MD. Örebro Univeristy Hospital, Sweden.
