Created in 2010, the CATI, Centre d'acquisition et de traitement des images, is a national platform dedicated to multicentre neuroimaging studies.
The aim of this infrastructure is to develop standardised protocols for image acquisition and analysis, in order to obtain a pool of data with harmonised characteristics from the partner imaging centres, with systematic quality control. To this end, this centre is made available to the entire community of clinicians and researchers studying Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative dementias.
The aim is to promote networking and to save time in the detection and monitoring of the disease. As the quality of equipment and images has improved considerably in recent years, the CATI also has the task of transferring the technologies it develops to the hospital environment. And, in fact, to enable the pharmaceutical industry to have access to well-identified patient cohorts.
