Mirada Medical Introduces Registration Assurance Program at AAPM 2014

New program ensures deformable image registration quality

July 24, 2014 — Mirada Medical introduced its Registration Assurance program at the 2014 annual meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) in Austin, Texas, to give clinicians total confidence in deformable registration as they integrate it into clinical practice.

One of the hottest topics at AAPM this year concerns the increasing growth of deformable image registration (DIR) utilization in radiation oncology and the subsequent critical need to evaluate fusion accuracy.

Registration Assurance is a comprehensive program for ensuring DIR quality and continuous improvement through rigorous scientific validation of technology, education, comprehensive QC tools and a commitment to ongoing development and support. As medical physicists continue to discuss how to integrate deformable registration into their clinical workflow, they need to be sure that the technology they use can be trusted to provide the best quality of care to the patient.

“Through technology licensing and fusion products, Mirada Medical has been providing the community with high-quality deformable image registration since 2002,” said Timor Kadir, Ph.D., chief technology officer, Mirada Medical. “Registration Assurance demonstrates our continued commitment to supporting the radiation oncology community in adopting and developing their use of this important technology.”
