NTT DATA, AnatomyWorks collaborate on brain mapping algorithms

NTT DATA Services has collaborated with AnatomyWorks for brain mapping algorithms.

The partnership will further improve analytics tools to offer better brain mapping detail and proficiency by using technology from Johns Hopkins University.

It aims to develop new data-driven tools to assist routine brain image reading by combining NTT DATA Services’ large database and image ‘structuration’ technologies from AnatomyWorks.

Deep Brain Stimulation may not require a hole in the skull in the future.

The ‘diffeomorphic’ image registration tools and the’ deformable’ population-based brain atlases will be made available to research and clinical users.

AnatomyWorks chief strategic officer Nayoung Louie said: “This partnership with NTT DATA Services will help accelerate the availability and scalability in the cloud for fully automated magnetic resonance image segmentation and anatomical interpretation tools.”

NTT’s unified clinical archive (UCA) will offer imaging analytics using machine vision and allow radiologists to quantitatively assess brain anatomy. The gathered data will be used to compare the results with normal population.

The UCA platform for imaging analytics is developing a range of machine vision and artificial intelligence tools, allowing physicians and clinicians to access the radiology imaging tools required to diagnose and treat patients.

AnatomyWorks is currently developing a cloud platform for fully automated MR image segmentation and anatomical interpretation tools to assist routine radiological and neurological image reading.

Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering director of the center for imaging science Michael Miller said: “Automated tools that radiologists can use to structure, search and retrieve population data should also provide better value from the imaging utilisation because of the additional health insights that anatomical analytics can provide.”

Earlier this month, NTT DATA closed its acquisition of Dell Services, expanding its expertise, consulting capabilities and IT services that modernise business and technology.
