Swedish University Hospital Improves Monitoring of Treatment Efficacy in Multiple Sclerosis With Synthetic MRI Innovation
Date:9/1/2011

STOCKHOLM, September 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

The medical imaging company SyntheticMR AB, a subsidiary to Accelerator Nordic AB, has secured an order for their magnetic resonance imaging software from Umeå University Hospital through their partner Sectra. The software will be used in clinical practice to monitor the treatment efficacy of multiple sclerosis (MS).

The software, SyMRI Diagnostics, includes tools to automatically estimate a measure for brain atrophy and, with minor manual interaction, retrieve the volume of local brain structures and lesions. "SyMRI enables us to retrieve accurate values on the patients status that we could not get before", says Dr Richard Birgander, Neuroradiologist at Umeå University Hospital. "We have analyzed the software's functionality and the results look very good, which has led to a decision to introduce it in regular clinical procedures."

"Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) generally has been about looking at pictures and trying to interpret them. SyMRI finally provides us with objective numbers," says Dr Anders Svenningsson, Neurologist at Umeå University Hosptial. "My goal is to integrate the SyMRI approach into the Swedish MS register to have more accurate follow-up possibilities for these patients." The Swedish MS register is a nation-wide database that strives to improve care and convey knowledge of Multiple Sclerosis.

The software will be seamlessly integrated in the hospital's radiology IT solutions from Sectra. "Offering third-party clinical innovations like SyMRI Diagnostics tightly integrated in our own IT solutions is an important part of our mission to offer our customers ways to improve their efficiency and the quality of care for their patients," says Dr Torbjörn Kronander, President of Sectra's medical operations.

SyntheticMR has a long standing relationship with Umeå University Hospital, where the SyMRI Diagnostics product has been evaluated on
