Evaluation of image analysis technology supporting dementia diagnosis

Health Innovation Oxford and Thames Valley have published a case study on their involvement in the development of a dementia diagnostic called FSL, a software platform which can extract metrics from brain scans.

The Oxford AHSN (now Health Innovation Oxford and Thames Valley) carried out a barrier to adoption study to evaluate the potential clinical applications of FSL in the dementia diagnostic pathway in the NHS in England.

The  research team has successfully secured further funding to build an early stage prototype. They will look to integrate this into the Oxford Brain Health Clinic, a hybrid clinical-research service for patients with memory problems, to test the technology in a real world memory clinic setting.

You can read the case study on the Health Innovation Oxford and Thames Valley website.
