Memory Loss

NeuroQuant for Memory Loss

Are you concerned about memory loss for yourself or someone else?

A notable New York Times article warns that it’s “one thing to forget where you left your car keys, but it could be something more serious if you don’t know what the keys are for or how to use them.”

An MRI of the Brain with NeuroQuant® at Doctors Imaging may help you or your loved one identify the presence of the early signs of serious memory loss. NeuroQuant® is a breakthrough technology for patients who are concerned about Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Seizure Disorders, offered by Doctors Imaging. NeuroQuant® is not offered at East Jefferson, Ochsner, Touro, West Jefferson, LSU or Tulane Hospitals.

DTI for Memory loss

Primary care doctors frequently encounter men and women under 65 years of age that have mild memory and cognitive difficulty, raising the question of (EOAD) Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. Using 3T MRI with qDTI (quantitative Diffusion Tensor Imaging), we can identify white matter biomarkers that present before actual symptoms.

Recent work by Federica Agosta, M.D., PhD and a consortium of top European neuroscientists explains that “DTI has the potential to assess the extensive disorganization of brain networks in focal Alzheimer’s Disease even before cognitive deficits become apparent.” You can read the full scientific article here.

Why Choose Doctors Imaging for this Procedure?

Doctors Imaging has been successfully using qDTI for concussion syndrome evaluation since 2014. We have successfully modified our concussion purpose qDTI techniques and imaging processes such that we are now accepting referrals for the evaluation of Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. When qDTI is combined with NeuroQuant, it allows for an investigation of memory loss and Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (EOAD). Dr. Soll provides statistically valid data covering 48 individual regions of the brain offering vital information to neurologists, neuropsychiatrists, and neuro-psychologists, allowing them to have objective anatomic correlations for patients suffering from random onset memory loss, cognitive, emotional and executive dysfunction.
