Brain Health Image

Imaging procedures for the brain can discern both the function and the structure of the nervous system. Also known as neuroimaging, this type of exam includes advanced techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and cranial ultrasound.

Some Brain Health Imaging Procedures Include:

Metabolic Brain FDG

A PET/CT metabolic brain FDG scan is used to image the structures and functioning of the brain - it can also differentiate types of dementia and brain atrophy. Positron emission tomography (PET) uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers, a special camera and a computer to help evaluate your brain. 



NeuroQuant is new brain imaging software that improves the early detection and treatment of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It precisely measures the brain atrophy (shrinkage) by measuring the size of the hippocampus and other brain structures that typically deteriorate with these disorders and compares the results to an FDA-approved database of people of the same age that have healthy brains. This information helps doctors aid in the diagnosis of neurodegenerative disease and follow its progression.
