The study evaluated the use of PROSTASCINT fusion imaging
to define brachytherapy treatment regimens for 239 newly-diagnosed prostate cancer patients.
with PROSTASCINT, or hybrid imaging, is an in vivo diagnostic technique that combines anatomic images with functional images.
The study focuses on FFDM, CAD, 3D/4D imaging, PACS, CTA/MRA, and fusion imaging
and its competitive structure in Europe.
This data presented at the AUA meeting adds to the growing body of peer reviewed clinical literature and presentations at major medical meetings reporting the clinical utility and positive outcomes associated with fusion imaging
with PROSTASCINT," commented Michael D.
PROSTASCINT fusion imaging
, or hybrid imaging, is an in vivo diagnostic technique that combines both anatomic and functional information directly from patient studies to provide information that cannot be obtained with separate imaging modalities.
Medweb's 3D technology offers exceptionally fast and easy-to-use multi-planar reformatting, volume rendering, MIP and fusion imaging
so that technologists can produce coronal, oblique, curved and sagittal images to supplement the initial CT images.
Patient tailored treatments were guided by state-of-the-art fusion imaging
which combines high resolution anatomic imaging using CT/MRI scans, with functional/molecular imaging using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging.
Provides Three-Dimensional Reconstruction, Leading
In advanced metastatic pancreas cancer, the patient-tailored treatments at Parker Hughes Cancer Center guided by fusion imaging
, a state-of-the art imaging method which allows doctors to stop ineffective treatments in a timely fashion, were more than 200% better than the national average and thus tripled the survival of patients with otherwise invariably fatal cancer.
Wagner, a professor of environmental health sciences at Johns Hopkins University, told attendees at SNM's meeting that fusion imaging
represents the future of nuclear medicine.
External Beam Radiation Therapy, When Aided by Advanced PROSTASCINT Fusion Imaging
Technique, Resulted in a Three-year Biochemical Failure-free Survival Rate of 84.
