(Adnkronos) – LONDON, April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — icometrix, the worldwide leader in digital health technology solutions for neurological conditions, announced the recent release of a Medtech Innovation Briefing (MIB) [MIB291] from the internationally renowned NICE for the CE markers and FDA cleared icobrain MRI measures in Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
In Multiple Sclerosis, software guided MRI measures of new and enlarging lesions and brain shrinkage are rapidly becoming the standard of care in MS clinical and therapeutic decision-making. The icobrain deep learning AI solution, developed by icometrix, is the most widely adopted and best validated clinical tool for individual people with MS. The added value of icobrain compared to current practice has been acknowledged by experts in the field, leading to the first MIB for Multiple Sclerosis care being issued.
“In MS, it is crucial to detect disease activity early for best informed treatment decisions and outcomes”, states Prof. Klaus Schmierer from Queen Mary University of London and Barts Health NHS Trust. “In addition to clinical scores, neurologists rely heavily on MRI to make therapeutic decisions. Hence, there is a significant need for sensitive and accurate MRI indices”, he continues. “This NICE MIB is an acknowledgement of icobrain as a leading competitor in the field of AI-supported MRI analysis and, more generally, data-driven care management with potential to enhance the standard of care for people with MS in the UK and beyond”, Prof. Schmierer concludes.
“We are thrilled by this MIB recognition from NICE and the experts in this field”, Dr. Wim Van Hecke, founder and CEO of icometrix, comments. “We are proud to lead digital health innovation in the field of MS (and neurological conditions in general), with this first MIB in the field of MS. Being spun out of academics, science and validation are in our DNA. We all know that digital health technology is a crucial component of personalized medicine in neurology, but the importance of clinical validation cannot be underestimated”, Dr. Van Hecke concludes.
