A view from the front lines at a community health system, with Dr. James Backstrom.
Improving MRI Efficiency Begins With Asking The Right Questions
While there’s no doubt that AI-based solutions can play a valuable role in diagnostic imaging, many of the radiology and health system leaders we spoke with at the 2022 RSNA conference were are asking an important question: are today’s AI models the right solutions...
SpinTech MRI Raises $6.5 Million in Series A Financing
SpinTech MRI to Expand Deployment of STAGE™ Software to Speed Diagnosis and Treatment of Brain Diseases with $6.5 Million in Series A Financing, Led by Level 8 Ventures and Genesis Innovation Group’s Cultivate(MD) Capital Fund
Traumatic Brain Injury Use Case
The STAGE protocol is designed to be highly sensitive to the visualization of lesions that may originate from trauma. STAGE has the ability to demonstrate key vascular brain damage which may be missed by conventional or low resolution scans…
Stroke Detection Use Case
STAGE is designed to benefit imaging and replace standard GRE and SWI in the acute and follow-up setting due to its high sensitivity to blood product lesions in the brain in the form of cerebral microbleeds and thrombus as well as…
Quantitative MR image processing opens up new avenues of treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in Veterans
For many, the term Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) brings to mind the 2015 film “Concussion”, starring Will Smith and based on the true story of Dr. Bennett Omalu, who discovered the link between repeated trauma to the head endured by professional football players and brain function degradation.
Susceptibility weighted imaging in acute cerebral ischemia: review of emerging technical concepts and clinical applications
Abstract Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) is an essential magnetic resonance imaging sequence in the assessment of acute ischemic stroke. In this article, we discuss the physics principals and clinical application of conventional SWI and multi-echo SWI sequences....
