More physicians in many different fields are turning to the power of fMRI to gather information about their patients they couldn’t get using current technology. Whether you’re a NEUROLOGIST challenged with developing or monitoring a treatment, a SPORTS MEDICINE PHYSICIAN trying to determine return-to-play status for an athlete, a PSYCHIATRIST ascertaining the effects of a certain drug therapy, or a GENERAL PRACTICIONER who wants to know if a head injury patient needs to be referred to a specialist, fMRI can provide you the ANSWERS you need.

fMRI improves patient care by enhancing:

  • clinical assessment of common conditions such as head injuries, persistent concussion symptoms, stroke, substance abuse, neurodegenerative diseases, and more
  • drug therapy evaluation
  • rehabilitation and treatment assessment
  • diagnosis clarification
  • outcome monitoring

fMRI provides important statistical information about brain functioning to physicians to help them better understand their patient’s conditions, prescribe appropriate treatments, and monitor treatments for optimal results. fMRI reports are easy to read and understand and help facilitate clear communication between physicians and their patients regarding the test results.

fMRI testing is covered by AMA billing codes (since 2007) fMRI testing is reimbursed by insurance

Notus Technology and Patient Care

The essence of NNI technology lies in the Notus NeuroCogs™ test battery, which includes six fMRI assessment tests available in both English and Spanish and specially designed for ease of administration in a standard MRI environment. Notus NeuroCogs™ is performed in about 45 minutes (comparable to a typical MRI). In short, if a patient is fit for an MRI, they are also fit for an fMRI.

Notus NeuroCogs™ covers an extensive scope of cognitive functions, enabling patients to exercise key functional areas of their brains in a way that produces measurable results. NNI compiles this data and compares it to normative statistics. NNI then returns to physicians detailed, yet easy to understand reports, which are linked to the specific problems the physician is investigating. Armed with this information, physicians are better able to target specific areas of impairment, focus treatment or therapy efforts, and evaluate treatment or drug prescription effectiveness. And just as importantly, patients receive answers and information about their conditions unavailable elsewhere.

The 6 fMRI tests included in Notus NeuroCogs™ cover a comprehensive scope of cognitive functions Notus NeuroCogs™ is administered in about 45 minutes, the same as a standard MRI NNI returns comprehensive results to physicians in convenient reports, which are designed to facilitate clear communication of the results to patients

NNI Database Unlocks the Power of fMRI

To fully unlock the power of fMRI, NNI spent over 5 years compiling a reference range for Notus NeuroCogs™.

This normative database acts as a statistical baseline for individual patient data to be compared with. A standard fMRI with no “normal” references would do little to benefit a patient or a physician treating a patient because it would not allow any meaningful interpretation. For a simple example: In a similar way to the Body Mass Index, Blood Panel, or a Toxicology Screen, individual data would be meaningless without a quantitative characterization of the healthy population.
