Mint Labs is building “the Google Maps for the brain”. We are an imaging data cloud system that enhances and extracts detailed 3D information out of current simple 2D MRI images.
Currently ⅓ of us is affected by a brain disease, and increasing as population ages. It costs $2.6 billion to develop a new treatment, including the cost of failures. The brain is very complex and well protected inside the skull – is is very difficult to evaluate non-invasively what is happening inside.
Mint Labs uses advanced MRI technology to look inside the brain. Our cloud based system employs proprietary software tools to integrate thousands of images and data from a patient and creates a specific detailed 3D map of the brain. We can quantify the effect of the treatment in the damage of the brain and characterise patients for clinical trials. The images are directly sent from the scanners to our servers, and there the data is automatically processed and analysed
The complex brain networks, where different axons (white matter) interconnect different cortical brain regions, showing the motor pathway, and the corpus callosum, integrating information from both sides of the brain: the right side of the brain is normally associated at expressive and creative tasks; while the left side is considered to be adept at tasks that involve logic, language, and analytical thinking.
BrainVis is a free 3D neuroimaging visualization tool with a simple user interface aimed for effective exploration of neuroimaging data towards demonstrating neurobiological findings.
Using the Leap Motion (www.leapmotion.com) device, we provide a touch-less interactive way for real-time exploration and visualization of brain maps.
TUMOR demo, CST only
In this video we can see the 3D visualization of the inside of a patient with a tumor. The green and red fibers show the corticospinal tract, which is a white matter motor pathway. The tumor is nearby this pathway, and together with a functional MRI activation map of a motor task (shown in red boxes), the visualization helps to characterize the patient during the presurgical planning.
Tumor demo, tumor mass vis
We can see how a tumor (blue mass) in the frontal lobe of a patient, is pushing away white matter tracts in this brain area.
