Wondering how LesionQuant, a NeuroQuant product, classifies and defines the FLAIR lesions that are identified and measured?
Here, we summarize LesionQuant’s FLAIR brain lesion count, volume and distribution classification and definitions.
LesionQuant defines lesions as areas of increased FLAIR MRI signal intensity above a set threshold when compared to the surrounding tissue.
Areas greater than or equal to 4 voxels will be considered a lesion.
Lesion burden is calculated by taking the total volume of lesions compared to total white matter volume. This provides the ratio of brain volume identified as lesion in contrast to healthy white matter.
LesionQuant provides lesion volume (cm3), count and percent of intracranial volume for all lesions, and is further classified into total lesions, new lesions and enlarging lesions.
For anatomical distribution classification:
