Neurognostics, Medical Numerics to develop fMRI tools
fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) specialist Neurognostics Inc. has inked a strategic partnership agreement with Medical Numerics Inc., a software developer of medical image visualization and analysis tools.

The companies have combined efforts to provide comprehensive fMRI tools and applications as an enhanced utility. The resulting new product line will be based on Medical Numerics’ fMRI tool set, and Neurognostics’ MindState fDPD fMRI application software.

fMRI has the potential to become a standard in patient care. From presurgical brain mapping to early identification of psychiatric and CNS disorders and measurement of therapeutic effect, fMRI has the potential to significantly impact the way physicians care for their patients, the companies said.
