CorticoMetrics Announces FDA 510(k) Clearance of THINQ™ for MRI Brain Volumetric Reporting

BOSTONNov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CorticoMetrics announced today it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for THINQ™, its AI-based software for use by radiologists and neurologists providing quantitative information to augment patient assessment for a number of neurological disorders and conditions.

THINQ™ automatically segments a T1-weighted MRI brain image, reporting volumetric measurements and visualizations of 30 critical brain structures, and compares these measures to age and gender-matched reference percentile data. Reporting includes images of the brain with color-coded segmentations, as well as plots showing how measurements compare to reference data.  The brain segmentations are also available in DICOM format as encapsulated JPEG images.

“THINQ™ reporting aids the workflow of radiologists and neurologists, aiming to increase examination throughput and improve the overall quality of patient outcome,” said Nick Schmansky, Co-Founder and CEO of CorticoMetrics.
