From Qualitative Images To Quantitative Measures
True Positive MD was founded by two brain researchers on a mission: they wanted to uncover a way to use brain images not just to diagnose but to predict the course of brain disease. By measuring the size, shape and appearance of brain regions, they were able to diagnose disease and provide prognosis much more accurately and earlier than any other method.
Today, they are leading the way in the development of sensitive, quantitative biomarkers to let doctors assess brain health. For example, brain volumes change at the rate of 2% per year in Alzheimer’s disease, a change so subtle it is undetectable to the human eye. But it is easily detected by True Positive MD technology.
With True Positive MD analytics, doctors can detect the earliest signs of traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and other brain diseases and disorders. With earlier detection comes the opportunity to change the trajectory of the disease.
This is the ground floor of a technology that will radically transform radiological reporting. Watch us transform the assessment of brain health.
