Bringing insight to the body’s most complex organ

Neurological cases can be challenging - especially strokes, where “time is brain” and you need to act fast. IntelliSpace Portal offers a rich suite of advanced visualisation neurology tools to help you assess blood flows to different parts and tissues of the brain, and evaluate neurological degenerative diseases. The IntelliSpace Portal neurology package includes a longitudinal brain lesion tracker and smart ROI tools that are designed to support diagnostic confidence.
Advanced 3D and graphical tools help you store, present, and communicate clinical information to support diagnostic confidence and productive collaboration.
