NeuroQuant MRI

Volumetric MRI to Assess Brain Health

Using the advanced capabilities of NeuroQuant software, we can quickly and efficiently screen for potential health issues related to brain injury, cognitive function, and neurodegenerative conditions.  Our board-certified neuroradiologists create a warm and caring study environment; an exceptional experience that minimizes patient anxiety and provides exceptionally accurate results.

NeuroQuant software is used in conjunction with MRI to scan the brain in a very specific sequence.  Using this tool, we can measure regional brain structures that are at risk when injury or brain function is in decline. The NeuroQuant software provides calculated data measurements which are then compared to same-age peers.  NeuroQuant was the first volumetric MRI application to use an FDA approved database of normative data. Using this database as a comparison, we can begin to assess cognitive function with exceptional accuracy.  

Like MRI, NeuroQuant is painless and does not use radiation.

Preparing For Your NeuroQuant MRI Exam

Patient peace of mind starts with the right preparation. To obtain the best possible study results, it is important that you follow the instructions below. 

During scheduling, a Washington Radiology team member will review with you the preparation instructions specific to your MRI exam. These instructions are repeated here for easy reference.

In addition to the written order from your doctor, please remember to bring to your appointment any prior images or reports from outside Washington Radiology if related to the reason for your visit with us.  

For all MRI patients, we request the following:

  • Continue to take any medications prescribed by your doctor unless otherwise directed.

  • Wear comfortable clothing without metal zippers, buttons, hooks etc.

  • Because of the magnetic field, we also ask that you not wear any metal hair clips or eye makeup which may contain small metallic flecks which can interfere with your scan.

  • Please leave jewelry and valuables at home.

  • A secure locker will be available to leave metal objects, like your keys and watch, in a safe place.

  • MRI contrast policy: Prior to injection, we perform Creatinine testing on all gadolinium contract cases. If test results prohibit the use of a contrast medium, a non-contrast study will be performed in most cases.

 

MRI WITH AND/OR WITHOUT CONTRAST

  • Inform us if you have a pacemaker, artificial heart valves, have any metal objects in your body, are pregnant, or are nursing.

  • No food or fluids 2 hours prior to your exam.

 

If you have any follow-up questions about these important MRI preparations, please contact the Washington Radiology office where your exam is scheduled and ask to speak with the nurse.
