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).

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

Thomas Bitman of Gartner wrote a blog post last year about why OpenStack projects fail. In that article, he outlined three particular metrics which together cause 60% of OpenStack projects to fall short of expectations: Wrong people (31% of failures): a successful cloud needs commitment both from the operations team as well as from "anchor" tenants. Wrong processes (19% of failures): a successful cloud automates across silos in the software development lifecycle, not just within silos.

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

The following fictional case study is a composite of actual horror stories I’ve heard over the years. Unfortunately, this scenario often occurs when in-house integration teams take on the complexities of DevOps and ALM integration with an enterprise service bus (ESB) or custom integration. It is written from the perspective of an enterprise architect tasked with leading an organization’s effort to adopt Agile to become more competitive. The company has turned to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) as ...
If you are within a stones throw of the DevOps marketplace you have undoubtably noticed the growing trend in Microservices. Whether you have been staying up to date with the latest articles and blogs or you just read the definition for the first time, these 5 Microservices Resources You Need In Your Life will guide you through the ins and outs of Microservices in today’s world.
This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...
With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
