The new MR Brain Perfusion and MR Brain Diffusion modules were developed by Carestream Health (Rochester, NY, USA), and now enable radiologists to read MR brain imaging studies from the diagnostic viewer of the CARESTREAM Vue PACS.

The MR Brain Perfusion module has interactive tools for analyzing tissue blood volume, tissue blood flow, and capillary permeability. The system automatically generates perfusion maps, and quantitative data for radiology reports.

The MR Brain Diffusion module includes interactive tools for MR diffusion tensor imaging, and MR diffusion-weighted images (DWI), and can visualize local water diffusion properties by analyzing diffusion-weighted MR data. The module can also enhance diagnostic confidence, and improve efficiency by automatically displaying DWI images and calculating ADC maps.

The manufacturer of the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) has already received US FDA 510(k), and Europe-wide clearance for the new Magnetic Resonance (MR) reading modules. The modules have also undergone successful clinical evaluation at a major French hospital.

Dr. Daniel Reizine, Neuroradiology, Hôpital Lariboisière, Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Paris, University Hospital of Île-de-France, said, “The Carestream software was simple to use and Carestream’s modules showed better consistency of perfusion and diffusion maps and results than our existing software. This new software will be very useful in making clinical decisions for treating acute stroke and lesions.”
