Intended Use Statements
Intended use (according to CE) The product is intended for automatic labeling, visualization and volumetric quantification of 3D MRI data (in DICOM format) of the head. The software automates the currently manual process of identifying, labeling and volumetric calculation of segmented brain structures on 3D MRI images. The calculated volumetric data, in addition to the image data at hand, can assist radiologists in detecting neurological diseases. The volumetric data obtained alone is not sufficient to establish a diagnosis and is not intended to do so.
