brain healthcare quotient[ITU-TH.861.0]:
A numerica indicator reqresenting physical characteristics of the brain that are pureported to be indicative of some state of a health related condition.




Recommendation ITU-T H.861.1
describes healthcare indices derived from neuroimaging analysis that are called brain healthcare quotients(BHQs), intended to be used for facilitating the communication of information about brain status. It describesth requirements on how such an index is created and also how some concrete BHQs can be defined and calculated. This Recommendation aslo includes examples of services using BHQs to better monitor health for supporting active and alert living. By its defining requirements, BHQs are linked to various healthcare aspects of human life and can be used to improve lifestyles. It gives standardized measurements and indices of brain conditions for specialists and non-specialists.
