September 13, 2016 — Vital Images Inc. recently announced the support of Nuance PowerScribe 360 Reporting and PenRad PenLung Lung Screening Management system in its comprehensive Lung Screening solution. The Vitrea CT Lung Analysis application helps clinicians standardize the diagnosis of lung nodules, while the solution’s workflow system facilitates management of lung screening treatment plans.

Nuance’s PowerScribe 360 is a speech recognition technology for radiology, providing accurate, flexible and rapid reporting that is consistent and actionable. The high-quality reports generated by PowerScribe 360 can help healthcare organizations improve both patient care and physician satisfaction, and optimize billing and reimbursement.

PenLung by PenRad is a unified software solution that helps radiology departments and imaging facilities manage patients participating in low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) lung screening programs. It collects smoking and environmental risk history through automated web and tablet calculators to manage patient eligibility and export of the lung registry for reimbursement.

Positron emission tomography (PET) using a 68Ga-labeled fibroblast activation protein inhibitor (FAPI) can noninvasively identify and monitor pulmonary fibrosis, according to research presented at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging 2021 Annual Meeting.

A) Axial CT images through the mouse lungs at 7 and 14 days after intratracheal administration of bleomycin or saline (as a control), demonstrating increased lung fibrosis in the bleomycin group (white arrows). (B) CT attenuation histograms in Hounsfield units (HU) after lung segmentation demonstrate increased attenuation in the lungs in the bleomycin group than the control group (p <0.05), consistent with increasing fibrosis (n=3). (C) Representative axial PET/CT fusion images at 20 and 60 min demonstrating increased FAPI uptake in the lungs of the bleomycin group (white arrows) with no significant uptake in the control group (yellow arrows). (D) Time-activity curve of lung uptake ROI analysis demonstrating higher FAPI uptake in the lungs of the bleomycin group than the control (p < 0.05), 14 days after bleomycin (n=3). (E) Ex vivo biodistribution data of lung tissue demonstrating higher radiotracer uptake in the lungs of the bleomycin group than the control (n=3). *p<0.05, **p<0.01.
