Positron Corporation to Provide MIMcardiac Software with mPower PET Scanners
PET medical device manufacturer Positron Corporation announced Thursday a partnership with MIMvista Corp. to provide MIMcardiac display and analysis software for their mPower brand scanners.
MIMcardiac, part of the MIMvista Corporation fusion and display software suite, will provide Positron Corporation's customers the ability to register three dimensional computed tomograph coronary angiograms (3D CTCA) and functional cardiac studies acquired on the mPower scanner, as well as triangulate between 3D and cross-sectional images. Users will also benefit from MIMcardiac's fusion of static and gated functional images including stress/rest metabolism/perfusion studies for evaluation of ischemia and infarction. Automatic calculation of cardiac volumes and ejection fraction are included. The software offering provides improved patient diagnosis and management through comparison of functional and anatomic image volumes.
Joseph Oliverio, president of Positron states, "MIMcardiac software will assist us in marketing our mPower scanners to the thousands of cardiology groups in the United States. We believe that the future of cardiac diagnostic imaging will involve the fusion of anatomy and metabolism / perfusion. MIMcardiac allows us to immediately offer this powerful combination."
