Mirada Medical Excites AAPM with Latest Additions to RTx Software

Denver, Colorado, July 26, 2012: Since releasing their RTx suite of high-level software tools for radiotherapy planning and assessment earlier this year, Mirada Medical has witnessed accelerating licensing sales worldwide including: the Gray Institute for Radiation Oncology and Biology, Moffitt Cancer Center, and Kettering Health Network. At this year’s AAPM meeting (American Association of Physicists in Medicine, booth 1345), being held this week in Charlotte, NC, Mirada is introducing enhancements to RTx that take full advantage of the company’s  powerful deformable registration and further its notoriety for highly efficient workflows. “Imaging plays a crucial role in our clinical research and trials and our projects are producing massive quantities of imaging data.” said Professor Gillies McKenna, Director of the Gray Institute. “Mirada software provides us with an extensive set of tools to provide in-depth analysis of this valuable data and efficient time-saving features for planning,” McKenna added. Mirada Medical is recognized for its leadership development of fast and accurate image fusion and deformable registration technology, for more than a decade.  The company’s algorithms are modality specific and yield the fast, highly accurate results that are essential for getting the most from the powerful software tools in the RTx suite. These include: dose warping and summation, atlas-based auto-contouring, deformable fusion of sequence MR, PET and SPECT and single click contour warping for rapid adaptive planning. The latest versions of all of these powerful planning and assessment tools will be unveiled in the Mirada exhibit at AAPM. “The laborious task of manually contouring an RT plan can take hours,” stated Timor Kadir, Chief Science and Technology Officer for Mirada Medical. “RTx provides automated contour warping from a previous plan or atlas significantly speeding up the process.” according to Kadir.
