SyntheticMR Announces Submission of 510(k) to FDA for Quantitative MSK MRI Package

A 6-minute scan can now provide multiple contrast images, and 5 quantitative tissue maps for MSK anatomies, including spine, knee, pelvis, ankles and shoulders

SyntheticMR, an innovative software solutions company for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) announced today the company filed a 510(k) submission for its musculoskeletal solutions package, SyMRI MSK.

November 17, 2020 — SyntheticMR, an innovative software solutions company for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) announced today the company filed a 510(k) submission for its musculoskeletal solutions package, SyMRI MSK.

“We are thrilled to receive 510(k) pending status for SyMRI MSK,” said Ulrik Harrysson, CEO, SyntheticMR. “In today’s environment, there is a clear demand for quantitative solutions in the musculoskeletal market and we believe that we have a unique opportunity to enable physicians to make better, more informed decisions using quantitative imaging in MSK applications.”

Like its neuro counterpart, the SyMRI MSK package provides radiologists a solution-based approach by offering 6-minute scans that can drastically improve patient throughput, produce a range of contrast-weight­ed images, as well as quantitative T1, T2, and PD maps for both clinical and research practices for all MSK anatomies and joints – including spine.

“Most people will experience joint or back pain at some point of their lives,” explains Kyle Frye, President of SyntheticMR US. “While it’s routine to use MRI to help physicians diagnose issues relative to the knee, shoulder, ankle, and spine, now we are taking it to the next level by providing a quantitative approach. In other words, we’re helping move from a subjective environment to one that is objective. And that’s something we are truly excited about.”

SyMRI MSK uses a unique scanning sequence to measure the ab­solute properties of the anatomy and joins the SyntheticMR’s growing portfolio of quantitative software solutions, which includes SyMRI NEURO.

New recommendations will help provide more reliable, reproducible results for MRI-based measurements of cartilage degeneration in the knee, helping to slow down disease and prevent progression to irreversible osteoarthritis, according to a special report published in the journal Radiology

Knee cartilage compartments with anatomic labels implemented in lateral (left side), central (middle), and medial (right side) MRI obtained with an intermediate weighted fat-saturated fast-spin-echo sequence (top row) and a spin-lattice relaxation time constant in rotating frame (T1r) magnetization-prepared angle-modulated partitioned k-space spoiled gradient echo snapshots sequence (bottom row, T1r maps). Study was performed without administration of intravenous gadolinium-based contrast material. The lateral femur (LF)/medial femur (MF) and lateral tibia (LT)/medial tibia (MT) can be further divided into subcompartments on the basis of meniscus anatomy according to Eckstein et al.
