This bachelor final project will try to offer clinic diagnostic tools for chronic liver disease that affect the brain and the abdominal muscles. To measure the muscle damage, we use tomography images, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Image). The idea of the software is use the image information to create a 3D muscle model of the erector spinae, and to estimate to fat and mass muscle volume. To study the abnormal brain function we use a headset that measure the brain electrical activity. This helmet is a cost-effective device for the hospital and the medical test is intended to be quick and easy to do by any doctor without specific knowledge of neurology because thanks to the software we have developed, the doctor will have all the information in a really easy to understand 3D Brain.On one hand, with these applications, an almost immediate diagnostic can be achieved, thus improving the prescribed treatment. On the other hand, this methodology aims to help to better discriminate which patients present more serious affections, and to give them priority if they are on waiting list for surgical intervention.
