BrainAnalyze, part of the “Société de Recherche en Radiologie” Association, is a dedicated structure for MRI medical images processing.
Who we are
We are an experienced Neuroradiologists, Engineers and Physicists Team with more than 20 years of Diagnostic NeuroImaging Practice, leaded by Pr Denis Ducreux.
Pr Denis Ducreux
, Neuroradiologist, MD, PhD in Physics (Image Processing), HDR, Head of Diagnostic Neuroradiology Department in C.H.U. Bicêtre, France, developed for 20 years Softwares dedicated to MRI Image Processing (Activ 2000, DPTools, Connectopedia, fMRICRoTools, BrainAnalyst), with two registered Patents (WO/2008/132386 and WO 2016/059055 A1).
Our Physicists and Engineers are specialized in NeuroImage Processing and MRI Physics.
We provide free scientific support for our Academic Partners, as well as solutions for any specific need focused on Brain, E.N.T, Peripheral Nerves and Spinal Cord MRI images processing, such as:

Help and Advices to help customizing your MRI Sequences for Diffusion, Diffusion Tensor, Perfusion, Permeability, Activation
Configuring your Workstations and PACS environments to work with BrainAnalyst, either in an Automated way (BrainAnalyst as a “Black-Box”) or in a End-User way (BrainAnalyst as a dedicated Workstation).
On-Demand Remote Automated Image Processing: you send your MRI exam to BrainAnalyze Servers (anonymized and encrypted), and you’ll receive the Results on Dicomized Reports in your PACS environment.
Do not hesitate to contact us should you require further informations.
BrainAnalyst is the BrainAnalyze Software Solution for Medical Image Processing, dedicated to Brain MRI Diffusion, Perfusion & Permeability, Activation, VBM, Tractography & Connectomics as well as Brain Structural & Functional Neuroanatomy Atlases.
BrainAnalyst, also known as “fMRICRoTools 1.3” is a stand-alone and web-based platform, running on Microsoft Windows x64 Seven and above, Apple OSX 10.x and above, and Linux kernel 4.5 and above, featuring CPU processing scalable abilities (for Grid / Cluster computing), which can be fully integrated in PACS environments, MRI manufacturers workstations, and web-based on-demand requests with fully automated processings (Fibertracking, Connectomics, Brain Functions Analysis, Stroke and Tumors Analysis, Voxel-Based Morphometry, aso…)
Interactive Atlas of Human Brain Anatomy, Vasculature and Functions (with Brain Functions Analysis using RTConTrack, patent WO 2016/059055 A1).
Importing/exporting Dicom, NIFTI, and GIS (old DPTools data format). All the database items (raw data, studies/patients/images info, VOI, Reports, Films, …) are encrypted and compressed to fasten loading, and ensure privacy of patients data.
Query / Retrieve / Send with automated conversion of the received dicom files into database entries and automated export of the database entries (Raw data, VOI, Reports, Films, …) to dicom files/nodes.
Functions with statistics, ROI mirroring, spreadsheet export, and VOI database management.
Features to manage, display, rearrange, dicomize (send to network nodes) and print reports automatically generated by the soft (Brain Functions Analysis, fMRI automated analysis, Stroke topography and volume Report, …).
Extraction, Motion Correction, Co-Registration and Normalization to MNI (T1) and BrainAnalyst (DTI, Fiber Bundles, Vasculature) Templates.
With automated Histogram Thresholding, Zoom/Pan/Rotate/Explore, Brightness, auto-Filming, 3D Rendering, VOI Stripping, …
Automated processing of ADC, DTI, PCA of multi compartmental diffusion to segment the Grey and White Matter, CSF and Flow compartments, automated Stroke Analysis (with automated identification of arterial territories, stroke volume and stroke mismatch)
Deterministic and Probabilistic (White Matter “Klinger like” Fibers peeling) automated extraction of 58 main White Matter Bundles and 116 Grey to Grey structural connections ; end user manual Fibers selection, tagging, display using tagging cube, VOIs, or Grey Matter as starting seed ; Density Fibertracking. Automated Reports of extracted Bundles with stats (lambda values, number of fibers, length, number of connections, …) and of Structural Connectom. Analysis of selective connections between Grey Matter Areas.
GLM standard analysis with Box-Car, Events or Resting-State Paradigm, Pseudo-Real Time fMRI processing using Time Interpolation and Signal Similarity Algorithm, Functional Connectom Inter-Regions Correlations Maps, Automated fMRI Analysis Report with activated areas identification, clustering, statistics, …
T2-weighted (DSC), T1-weighted (DCE) and pulsed ASL Perfusion / Permeability Module (using patent WO/2008/132386): Brain Perfusion in T2-w, with automated AIF extraction, TTP, TMax, CBV, CBF, MTT maps automatically contrast leakage corrected (when necessary). Quantitative CBF from pASL. MRI T2* and T1 permeability assessment with KPS, fBV. Automated Stroke and Tumors Analysis Report with Stroke Volume, Penumbra, Arterial / Structural Territories identification, Neoangiogenesis quantitation, …
Customizable command-lines boxes with main executable, icon and parameters, to let the users add their own routines/soft into the main software, with either NIFTI or Dicom I/O files processing from/to the database.
Based on Oculus Rift VR technology, either in FullScreen, SBS or (future) Native Rendering, explore, navigate and visualize the Brain Architecture in real 3D.
Multi-cores Intel class CPU (at least four cores, twelve are recommended), 16 GB of RAM for standard processings (32 GB for Connectomics and >64 GB for Clusters), an OpenGl 3.x compatible Graphic Card, 1 GB of free Disk Space for program (SSD / MVE are better), 5 GB per study of free Hard Disk space, Full HD or 4K Display Monitor, and effective internet connection (for online help, and remote tasks and services). VR Compatible Device for Virtual Reality Module, and at least NVIDIA GeForce 1070 GTX.
Follow these steps:
1- Register the BrainAnalyze Website ; wait for the admin approval (you’ll be notified by email), then Login to BrainAnalyze
5- If you want to use BrainAnalyst further (if you are not one of our Academic Partners, please see the BrainAnalyst Price List), Get your CPUID, select your BrainAnalyst Package (Basic, Fibertracking, Connectomic, Brain Functions Analysis) and send the CPUID here.
6- After Registration, you will receive by email your “license.txt” file. Copy it into the “Incoming” folder. For Professionals, customized In-Site installation will be performed by one of the BrainAnalyze Team Members.
