NIH added to Mirada Medical- Prestigious Sites – Hybrid PET/MR Research Key Factor

Denver, CO, November 26, 2013: Mirada Medical announced that the company has installed its advanced XD3 image analysis software at the prestigious National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. XD3 will initially be employed for multi-modality image fusion research including PET/CT and PET/MR. The software uniquely affords the ability to compare and quantify multiple modalities and unlimited time points of data.

PET/MR is gaining rapid adoption as a reliable modality for diagnosis and treatment management of a variety of oncologic conditions and Mirada Medical has responded with the industry’s first full-featured PET/MR reading software. PET/MR demonstrates exquisite soft-tissue differentiation for improved localization in areas such as the abdomen and pelvis and more discriminative tissue characterization through functional MR. Mirada’s XD3 software is based on Deformable Image Registration (DIR) which corrects for non-rigid motion. Unlike conventional rigid registration, deformable registration can also correct for differences in patient positioning, thus allowing the fusion of PET/CT and MR scans acquired using standard protocols on different equipment, at different times. XD3 supports the loading of multiple PET/MR studies and swapping of MR sequences in real-time even in a fused view.   “

We are proud to have been selected by the National Institutes of Health,” stated Hugh Bettesworth, CEO of Mirada Medical. “The technology defining features of our XD3 software with deformable image registration will support NIH clinicians and researchers in optimizing the clinical benefits of PET/MR while empowering ground breaking research into novel fused image analysis. I firmly believe that novel image analysis and quantification of PET/MR has the potential to redefine the future standard of care,” added Bettesworth.

Mirada Medical will be demonstrating the latest developments for software PET/MR along with its entire suite of solutions for fusion and quantitative reading at the annual Radiological Society of North America meeting (booth 6520, North Hall) December 1 – 5th in Chicago, Illinois.
