AutoAlign is an automated MRI slice prescription software application that can be embedded in an MRI scanner’s system software.
MRI scans of the brain are aligned differently from site to site, from subject to subject within a site, and during repeat scans for a single subject. This variability increases the variation in the rescan process, making it less reliable and more problematic for precise side-by-side comparisons or computer-aided volumetric analysis.
Its purpose is to solve this challenge, correcting for differences in patient positioning between scans.
The consistent anatomical alignment provided by use of AutoAlign during the MRI acquisition process can:
