AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS

Autism is not a processing error, it is simply a different operating system that we need to learn to understand

Autism is a group of complex disorders of brain development that manifest in social problems, language abnormalities, and restricted, repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behaviour, interest or activity. Autism affects over two million individuals in the US, and tens of millions worldwide. Currently, 1-in-68 American children are on the autism spectrum, and 1-in-20 are considered to be at high risk for developing autism spectrum disorder.

BRAIN MAPPING TECHNOLOGY

Brain Mapping Technology that makes understanding simple.

Understanding complex neurological conditions is difficult. Finding out what these conditions mean and understanding the best path forward is even harder. Patented NeuroAtlas brain mapping technology allows parents and therapists to better understand what a nerological condition means, and helps users to determine the useful options for targeted therapy.

BORN IN LOUISVILLE, KY

Technology developed in Louisville, KY

NeuroAtlas brain mapping software has been developed by top biomedical engineers, researchers, and neurologists in partnership with the University of Louisville. Our technology is backed by more than seven years of research and competitive trials. It is the latest technology that you can use to help target treatment, especially in children under two years of age.

3-DIMENSIONAL SHAPE ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGY

Performing a fast and accurate shape analysis of the brain is just as important as brain segmentation. The NeuroAtlas technology uses state-of-the-art 3D shape analysis algorithms to perform a detailed analysis of structural MRI scans to quickly and visually identify areas that can help better understand your neurological condition.

More information about NeuroAtlas Shape Analysis Technology, along with citations and publications coming soon!

AUTOMATED BRAIN SEGMENTATION

Accurate and automated segmentation of both adult and infant brain images is critical to the success of the NeuroAtlas technology. NeuroAtlas uses a hybrid framework for segmenting brain images in both infants and adults has been developed to account for the numerous variations in individual patient brain matter.

The primary segmentation for adults is based on a joint-Markov Gibbs Random Field (MGRF) framework which uses 1st and 2nd order models combined with a shape prior model. In infants this approach was adapted so that the infant framework implements bias correction prior to skull stripping and then a visual appearance model of each brain is constructed using an intelligent iso-surfaces model. This visual appearance model is then combined with a 1st and 2nd order model, similar to the model used in the adult brain segmentation.

The approaches used by NeuroAtlas have achieved a very high accuracy of segmentation. The segmentation approach was ranked #1 in the world at the MICCAI MRBrainS13 Challenge, which was an international competition for automated brain segmentation approaches. The developed segmentation approaches are fully automated and provide high quality segmented data for analyzing the shape of the brain..
