CLEVELAND, Nov. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MIM Software Inc., a leading global provider of medical imaging software, todayannounced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for post-treatment dosimetry of Yttrium-90 (Y90) microspheres.
Yttrium-90 microspheres deliver local radiation as permanent
MIM SurePlan™ LiverY90 provides timesaving tools for liver and tumor segmentation, deformable registration, and allows patient-specific dose calculation on Y90 PET and Bremsstrahlung SPECT images after administration of permanent Y90 microsphere implants. The absorbed dose can be calculated for tumors and the liver to help provide important additional information to the clinician.
Three methods are available for dose calculation: Local Deposition Model, Local Deposition Model with scaling for known injected activity, and the Voxel S Value approach based on the schema in MIRD Pamphlet No. 17. All three methods are available for PET while only the Local Deposition Model with scaling for known activity is available for SPECT images that are not in Becquerel per milliliter (Bq/ml).
MIM Software will demonstrate MIM SurePlan LiverY90 at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting November 26-30 in Chicago. Attendees wishing to view a demonstration can visit booth 8108.
