Mirada Medical Helps PET/CT Providers Stay Competitive -- Showcases Latest Solutions at Annual Nuclear Medicine Conference

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 06/10/12 -- In the few short years since PET/CT became a multi-modal procedure of choice for cancer staging and therapy assessment, many providers are now facing tough competition from the growing number of scanning services entering their markets. Mirada Medical has developed their entire product line to offer customers innovative ways to differentiate their PET/CT service and improve workflow efficiency. The company will be demonstrating how successful PET/CT providers are competing more effectively with Mirada's products at the annual Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM) meeting (booth #619) in Miami Beach, June 9-12.

"PET/CT providers, like all successful enterprises, must continually innovate and improve their quality and service to remain competitive," stated Hugh Bettesworth, CEO of Mirada Medical. "The suite of advanced Mirada software solutions we are demonstrating at SNM has been developed to help PET/CT providers stay on the competitive cutting edge and deliver better patient care."

Improving communications with referrers is the latest focus of Mirada Medical. Referrers and their patients want quick and comprehensive PET/CT results. Mirada's Caseaccess allows radiologists to offer the referrer a more comprehensive service, giving them secure online access to their patient's image data and findings. The referring physician can log onto the Caseaccess portal and access the full PET/CT study performed by the radiologist in Mirada's XD3 reading platform, including images, detailed reports, bookmarked key findings, quantitative measurements and the ability to track the patient's progress across time. As a result, the referrer is able to offer a premium service to the patient using the portal by reviewing the key findings and progress with them.

PET/MR imaging has continued to gain interest since the introduction of the first dedicated scanners at the 2011 annual meeting. Although PET/MR is clinically superior at visualizing certain types of soft tissue lesions, the five million dollar price tag of dedicated scanners and lack of PET/MR reimbursement has limited their implementation to a few elite institutions. Mirada Medical's Software PET/MR provides the same results as a scanner/hardware based PET/MR at a fraction of the cost. The company utilizes their validated CT/MR deformable registration algorithm to fuse the CT for PET/CT with an MR and view the fused PET/MR. For those PET/CT providers wanting to differentiate their service to referrers, Mirada's software PET/MR is a clinically and cost effective bonus.

Mirada is also helping its customers differentiate their PET/CT service with a host of advanced Quantitative Reading tools in its XD3 software suite. In addition to qualitative PET/CT studies, readers can quantify changes over time, notably assessing response to therapy.

Many radiologists are required to regularly attend important multi-disciplinary meetings. Until now, this has been a painful process, both preparing for and presenting at these tumor board meetings. With Mirada Mirada's Casemeeting software, there is a huge time savings in preparation, as well as agility in showing the whole volume of data along with image manipulation tools during presentations, not just static slides. Casemeeting allows the radiologist to demonstrate the vast qualitative and quantitative capabilities of Mirada's XD3 advanced imaging software to differentiate further the provider's PET/CT service in real time the multi-disciplinary referrers who attend the tumor board meetings.

Mirada Medical is taking reservations on their web site for personal demonstrations during the SNM meeting of how their innovative software solutions help differentiate customer's PET/CT service and attract referrers. Demonstration times can also be scheduled at the booth (#619).

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
