GE Healthcare and CorTechs Labs Inc. Announce Strategic Agreement to Co-Market NeuroQuant®, Comprehensive Solutions for Quantifying Brain Volume Loss

Today at the joint meeting of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) and the European Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB), GE Healthcare, a leading provider of MRI systems, and CorTechs Labs, a leading medical software innovator providing solutions for quantitative brain volume analysis, are pleased to announce the signing of a strategic joint-marketing agreement. The companies will collaborate to co-market a powerful MRI scanning solution combined with NeuroQuant, CorTechs Labs’ leading MRI post-processing application.

NeuroQuant enables the acquisition of volumetric brain image data and automatically conducts accurate and consistent measurements of cortical and subcortical volumes targeted at identifying evidence of neurodegeneration. This innovative solution will provide neurologists and radiologists with objective support for their clinical impression.

“Accurate measurement of volumes of different parts of the brain may be a useful aid in the diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury," said Chris Airriess, chief technology officer, CorTechs Labs. "Volume changes in certain brain structures have been linked in the literature to early indications of such conditions where more traditional diagnoses lack detection sensitivity.” NeuroQuant does this in an automated fashion, without user intervention, and is the only 510(k) approved software for this application.

“CorTechs Labs is a pioneer and a trendsetter in the area of software for the aid of brain diagnostics and is widely used in clinical practices worldwide,” said Baldev Ahluwalia, premium segment manager at GE Healthcare, MRI. “We at GE Healthcare look forward to collaborating with CorTechs Labs, benefitting from their innovative approach to providing the highly-desired quantitative brain volumetric information with NeuroQuant.”

"We're pleased to expand our relationship with GE Healthcare. With a leading global presence in advanced MRI scanning solutions, GE Healthcare is a terrific collaborator providing complementary products and services,” said Guri Stark, CorTechs Labs’ CEO. “We look forward to working with GE Healthcare to empower clinicians with objective quantitative data, while continuing NeuroQuant’s growth momentum. In turn, this furthers our vision to establish NeuroQuant as the standard measurement solution for all brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
