FDA Clears Mirada Medical's Simplicit90y Dosimetry Software

Interventional radiology software helps improve dose calculation and treatment planning for Y90 transarterial radioembolization

FDA Clears Mirada Medical's Simplicit90y Dosimetry Software

February 18, 2019 — Mirada Medical Ltd announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for Simplicit90Y. Designed in collaboration with BTG to facilitate personalized treatment for patients with liver cancer, Simplicit90Y is an easy-to-use dosimetry software developed for accelerating dosimetry planning and improving Y90 transarterial radioembolization (TARE) workflow.

Simplicit90Y provides digital processing, review and reporting of medical images, including planar scans (static, whole body) and tomographic scans acquired by gamma cameras or positron emission tomography (PET) scanners. The software is intended for use by interventional radiologists or nuclear medicine physicians, with unique options for data display, quality control, image manipulation and quantification analysis. Together, these features allow for more standardized and reproducible dosimetry planning and post-treatment validation, and the ability to personalize the treatment of each patient.

BTG will be at The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) 2019 congress, March 23-28 in Austin, Texas.

The FDA 510(k) clearance follows Simplicit90Y’s CE Mark certification and approval for use in Canada.

Boston Scientific's TheraSphere Y-90 Glass Microspheres enable selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT), or radioembolization, for hepatocellular carcinoma. This treats liver cancer with low toxicity using millions of microscopic glass beads containing radioactive yttrium (Y-90), delivered directly to liver tumors via catheter. The result in minimal radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.
