June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month: How MRI NeuroQuant Can Help With Early Diagnosis

How MRI NeuroQuant Can Help With Early Diagnosis

Alzheimer’s disease is a challenging condition that requires early intervention and ongoing treatment. Overall, 5.6 million Americans are currently living with the disease. On the current course, that number is expected to grow to more than 7.5 million by 2030.

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. It is an opportunity to center the conversation around Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other degenerative neurological conditions. More research is needed into these conditions. On the issue of awareness, it is also crucial that people and families understand the importance of early detection and proactive intervention.

An innovative technology known as a NeuroQuant Brain MRI can make a significant difference in many people’s lives. It helps medical professionals identify and assess neurodegeneration at the earliest possible stage. At Intermountain Medical Imaging (IMI), our team of top-rated radiologists provide NeuroQuant Brain MRI services in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, and throughout Idaho.


What is a NeuroQuant Brain MRI?

NeuroQuant is a type of advanced computer software used to analyze a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain. Approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), NeuroQuant is one of the most effective diagnostic tools available. It helps radiologists and clinicians make objective, comprehensive measurements of brain volume—most notably, the brain structures frequently damaged by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. In addition, the medical team can more confidently detect and diagnose neurological degeneration by comparing the NeuroQuant brain MRI scans to national databases with comprehensive patient information adjusted for age, sex, and size.


Know the Benefits of NeuroQuant Brain MRIs: Early Detection and Early Treatment

With Alzheimer’s disease, early detection is critically important. However, one of the challenges doctors face is that diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease—particularly in its early stages—is notoriously difficult. Notably, several neurological conditions mimic Alzheimer’s.

Some early warning signs of Alzheimer’s/dementia are also associated with other medical issues, including side effects of medication, generalized anxiety and depression, and brain tumors. Therefore, the sooner doctors can confidently confirm the signs of Alzheimer’s and/or dementia, the sooner a comprehensive treatment program can begin.


NeuroQuant Brain MRI Can Help Families Know What to Do and What to Expect

Alzheimer’s disease is a life-altering condition. As stressful as it can be to deal with the condition, an early diagnosis can make an enormous difference for you and your family. An early diagnosis dramatically improves the effectiveness of care and treatment. You can start taking action right away to slow the onset of the condition as much as possible. Beyond that, it lets the patient and their family start making legal, financial, and personal decisions well ahead of time—before significant cognitive decline sets in.

The proper treatment plan requires the correct diagnosis. NeuroQuant Brain MRI helps medical providers overcome these challenges. State-of-the-art technology, NeuroQuant MRI’s, can be used to pick up on very subtle changes or degeneration in the brain. Knowing precisely what is going on, you and your family will be in the best position to prepare for the future.
