SyMRI software from SyntheticMR to be compatible with most Philips MRI scanners
SyntheticMR AB today announced that its SyMRI software will be compatible with most of Philips’ MRI scanners to help enhance workflow efficiencies and clinical decision support. SyntheticMR and Philips have signed a co-operation and co-marketing agreement, as part of which Philips will offer the SyntAc sequence as optional software to customers, making most of Philips’ MRI scanners compatible with the SyMRI post processing software packages offered by SyntheticMR.
With SyMRI packages from SyntheticMR, the data generated from a single SyntAc scan can be turned into multiple image contrasts, having workflow and time saving benefits. Moreover, the contrast can be adjusted after the scan, creating additional images without re-calling the patient. Automatic segmentation of brain tissue provides objective decision support based on quantitative data.
“I am very pleased that customers using most Philips MRI scanners will now have access to SyMRI, expanding our software packages to a broader, global customer base and enabling them to explore new imaging strategies and efficient quantification capabilities,” says Stefan Tell, CEO of SyntheticMR.
SyMRI is available in three product packages. SyMRI IMAGE is dedicated to optimized workflows and short scan times using synthetic MRI. This is achieved by a single MR quantification scan, allowing a significant reduction in scan time compared to acquiring each contrast separately. SyMRI NEURO adds quantitative data, providing efficient analysis and objective decision making for brain imaging. SyMRI NEURO is used in the clinical workflow to follow up disease development of neurodegenerative diseases. SyMRI Research Edition is optimized for clinical research within neuro imaging. Quantitative T1, T2 and PD maps (SyMaps™) can be saved and exported for further analysis in other formats.
