New software to detect multiple sclerosis before brain damage occurs

October 2009

Researchers of the Unit for Systems Biology of the University of Jaén, led by Francisco J. Esteban, are developing a software for clinical use to detect multiple sclerosis even before the typical brain damage of this neurodegenerative disease appear. In order to do so, this scientific multidisciplinary team is calculating the fractal dimension of the brain images registered on magnetic resonance imaging. They are starting to implement this technique also to other neurodegenerative diseases, and therefore it could be a tool for the early diagnose of this type of diseases. Centre for Applied Medical Research of the University of Navarra and Hospital Clínico of Barcelona are collaborating in this research.
