iPlan Flow software enables targeted medication delivery for the treatment of brain tumors. The National Ministry for Education and Research in Germany and the National Institutes of Health in the U.S have provided research supporting the software’s ability to allow surgeons to assess where and how medications need to be infused in order to reach specific cells within the brain.
iPlan Flow facilitates targeted drug delivery to specific areas of the brain and can make the process considerably safer and more effective. Based on ongoing research from Dr. Raghu Raghavan and Dr. Martin Brady, both of Baltimore, MD, a computer uses magnetic resonance imaging to render an individual 3-D map of the patient’s brain. This map then calculates the distribution patterns of the medication. With this information, the doctor can now preoperatively identify the location where the medication needs to be delivered.
