MR-PET Software Enables Readers to Switch Quickly Between Sequences

November 24, 2010 — Software fusion technologies to support magnetic resonance-positron emission tomography (MR-PET) and MR-computed tomography-PET (MR-CT-PET) imaging will be unveiled at RSNA 2010 in Chicago.

MR-PET Fusion allows image readers to rapidly switch between different MRI sequences while the MR is fused to the PET, apply both motion correction to the different MR protocols prior to registration with the PET, and tri-modality fusion imaging to allow the MR to be viewed with both CT and PET simultaneously. Additionally, readers will be able to quantify regions of interest in MRI and compare these with earlier or later acquisitions.

The new tools, when coupled with Mirada Medical’s deformable registration technology and built-in support for standard and user-defined response assessment protocols, such as RECIST, WHO and PERCIST, provide the user with power to review, compare and quantify a patient’s complete set of current and previous imaging studies.
