IQ-AI Limited - Initiation of IB Stroke Project
("IQ-AI" or the "Company")
IQ-AI announces that a series of new technology initiatives are being launched that will form the backbone for the Company's new products as well as enhancements to existing products during calendar 2020. These advancements are substantially derived from the progress being made with IQ-AI's previously announced Gadolinium free product initiative.
Most notable of these initiatives is a project which we expect to complete in the final quarter of 2020, to leverage our existing algorithms to create an 'IB Stroke' package. One of the unique features of Imaging Biometrics' (IB) portfolio of brain focused products is their ability to accurately map and quantify blood flow in the brain. IB already offers a unique biopsy-validated diagnostic imaging platform to neuroradiologists for assessing brain tumors and monitoring their response to treatment. IB also offers all the metrics found to be most valuable for the evaluation of stroke and response to therapies. For example, IB's proven perfusion and diffusion maps will be used to generate the perfusion-diffusion mismatch (DPM) which typically represents ischemic penumbra, or the area of viable tissue at risk. IB will leverage its proven ability of efficiently translating novel developments into routine clinical use, to create an automated and streamlined processing application for clinician's use.
There are two principal forms of stroke, hemorrhagic stroke and ischemic stroke. Hemorrhagic stroke results from ruptured blood vessels, ischemic stroke results from blocked blood vessels. Both have the effect of denying brain tissue sufficient blood flow, nutrients and oxygen to maintain its viability. The ability of IB's suite of products to accurately track regional blood volume can be used to diagnose and project outcomes for stroke victims. With respect to MR processing, the commonly accepted pre-load dose of gadolinium could also be avoided with this product which is consistent with our longer-term goal of reducing and eliminating gadolinium-based contrast agents. Eliminating this pre-load dose of contrast agent for stroke assessment could potentially save valuable time which is absolutely critical for stroke patients.
