White Matter Lesions

Quibim

Quibim's White Matter Lesions enables to detect, automatically segment and characterize white matter lesions by calculating their volume, area, dissemination, entropy and other biomarkers. The suite uses an AI methodology based on an ensemble of convolutional neural networks (CNN) that are able to detect and segment white matter hyperintensities in FLAIR images. The tool supports the early detection, diagnosis and follow-up of brain disorders including focal epilepsy, migraine and stroke.
