In response to an application filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, CereScan® has broadened the parameters on its automated diagnostic assistance and intelligent support system, CereMetrix®, which uses quantitative measurements to assist in the diagnosis and study of complex brain disorders. Through award of a second patent, the company may now claim exclusive use of its neuroimaging database systems and methods in the measurement of all types of brain activity. The patent expands CereScan's intellectual property and use of its wholly owned data warehouse, known to be the most comprehensive store of functional brain imaging data, associated patient demographic, clinical information and biomarkers worldwide.
"CereScan® is transforming the future of advanced brain diagnostics and use of intelligent learning to benefit those suffering from and studying complex brain disorders," said John Kelley, CEO and Chairman of CereScan®. "The expansion of our patent allows us to apply key learnings to all manners of brain measurement, and vastly expands the potential for advancements in brain science using technology."
Headquartered in Denver, CereScan® uses its patented methods, combining patient-clinical information, functional brain imaging and advanced processing software to help medical professionals identify abnormal brain physiology and activity using correlative data and pattern matching contained within its extensive data warehouse. Through the application of technology to traditional medical practice, CereScan® has assumed a leadership role in advancing precision brain diagnostics and science. Its first patent was awarded in September of 2014, and allowed for exclusive utilization of it systems and methods under more limited claims.
CereScan® is uniquely positioned to capitalize on a planned release of CereMetrix®, its MAaS (Medical Analytics as a Service) platform in 2017. Its patented technology is considered by industry insiders to be a positive disruptor in the field of diagnostic radiology. CereScan's MAaS product suite incorporated into its CereMetrix® offering is being labeled as revolutionary, based on early feedback from Radiologists, Neurologists, and Psychiatrists who have had a chance to experiment with early release versions.
