MEDRAD Demos Cardiac CT Injection Software
MEDRAD is working on advancing the P3T software family of products for clinical applications beyond Cardiac CT.
Personalized patient injection protocols are showing promise, according to a recent University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) study which documented that contrast injection protocols personalized to patient-specific parameters of its test group resulted in a higher percentage of exams that could be classified as “diagnostic, without limitations” to rule out pulmonary embolism than resulted from non-personalized standard injection protocols. A diagnostic exam without limitations is the type that is most desired by radiologists. The personalized patient protocols provided better contrast enhancement of the pulmonary arteries in the study group as well. Researchers presented the study results in a scientific poster at a meeting of the Society of Thoracic Radiology in 2008.
