  • The study set out to evaluate whether combining semiquantitative and quantitative assessment of brain atrophy would add value in clinically diagnosing the behavioural-variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD). A general trend of higher accuracy in diagnosing bvFTD was observed, when using the semiquantitative assessment alone, or combining both.
  • Quantib® ND was used as one of the methods to perform automated quantitative atrophy assessment.
