CorTechs Labs reports in the study “Performance Evaluation for MS Identification Models”, CorTechs Labs used a recent version of their flagship product, NeuroQuant 3.0, to compute volumetric brain measurements to train an AI algorithm to create machine learning models for different age ranges to classify multiple sclerosis (MS) subjects. They evaluated the performance of these models for identifying MS subjects and studied the differences of feature importance selected by the models based on whole and specific age range data. The company will be presenting its findings at the conference around the understanding that studying volumetric changes in the brain can lead to a much deeper understanding of the effects and symptoms of MS as a disease, and that these models may be used as MS classifiers to assist clinicians in decision making.

“We are dedicated to improving patient outcomes and up-leveling the standard of patient care through best in class clinical applications and patient-centric analysis and reporting,” said Chris Airriess, Ph.D., chief executive officer of CorTechs Labs. “Having two very close friends with the disease, I have seen firsthand the impact MS can have on the lives of patients and their families. We work hard every day to provide software solutions to enable early, accurate diagnosis of MS to ultimately help patients get the treatment they need as soon as possible – and to monitor treatment response to ensure the best possible outcomes. The research being presented at ACTRIMS provides hope for furthering these advancements in the diagnosis and classification of MS.”
