pMRI

Parametric MRI

Parametric MRI (pMRI) is a “spiritual successor” to CHOP-fMRU.

The purpose of this software is to provide access to powerful, fast and easy to use tools for various medical imaging post processing techniques including fMRU, T2/T2* mapping with built in LIC conversion, T1 mapping, 3D region growing, T2* perfusion, DWI, Dual Energy CT and others.  pMRI fully integrates with PACS and runs on Microsoft Windows.  The software is currently in closed beta.  Please use the contact form below if you would like to try a pre-release version or for more information.

Features

3D Rendering

Generate up to 8 independent surfaces per analysis.  Rotate the images with the mouse and move the camera around freely in real time!

fMRU

Calculate split function and volumes.  Generate enhancement, patlak and excretion curves, histograms and much more!  This is CHOP-fMRU version 2.

T1 Mapping

Generate inversion recovery curves from T1 MOLLI data.  Calculate mean T1 values, maps and histograms using non-linear least square fitting.

Histograms

Generate histograms of various parameters.  Calculate means, standard deviations, and do Gaussian fits.  View dynamic histograms in real time.

Segmentation

Segment images using various tools, ranging from free-hand to advanced region growing.  Threshold based on multiple parameters and more.

MAG3

Analyze multi-phase renal scintigraphy studies for split function.  Threshold/region grow based on counts and generate various curves and histograms

T2/T2* Mapping

Calculate mean T2/T2* values and maps with built in LIC conversion for R2/R2* liver iron data.  Includes mono and bi-exponential modeling as well as custom weighted fits.

Batch Processing

Save your analysis with one key stroke and analyze multiple cases in bulk after.  Copy and paste the results directly into excel, avoiding organizational errors.

DICOM Support

Import/export DICOM studies and maintain them in a searchable database for quick and easy access.  Anonymize multiple studies with two clicks.

T2* Perfusion

Generate dynamic ΔR2* maps and ΔR2* vs time curves and histograms.  Calculate CBV values and maps based on a gamma variate fit.

Dwi2.png

DWI Analysis

Calculate ADC based on linear and non-linear exponential fits.  Estimate perfusion using bi-exponential modeling.  Generate virtual b-values.

PACS.png

PACS Integration

Setup and connect to multiple servers.  Search, send and receive DICOM images over a network.  Integrates with common DICOM networking software.
