Strong Endorsements cited for MedQIA - Imaging CRO's Novel Bone Scan Scoring System at the ASCO 2012 Annual Meeting
Date:7/3/2012

LOS ANGELES, July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MedQIA has developed a bone scan analysis package within our 510 (k) – cleared Imaging Biomarker Information System (IBIS). It includes a new automated technique for detecting lesions on bone scans that involves intensity normalization, thresholding, and connected-component analysis. The system calculates quantitative metrics for assessing disease burden and treatment response including total Bone Scan Lesion Area (BSLA), Bone Scan Lesion Intensity (BSLI), and Bone Scan Lesion Count (BSLC).1) During the breakout Oral Session for Prostate Cancer,  Karim Fizazi, MD, Ph.D., of the Institute Gustavo Roussy stated the following: "I would like to emphasize that we now have a new computer assisted detection system available for response in bone scan and I think this is a very important landmark for research in prostate cancer, because it is so difficult to measure response and progression in that disease."2) During the Poster Discussion Session for Genitourinary (Prostate ) Cancer, Ulka Vaishampayan, MD,  stated:"This methodology should be encouraged for future evaluation of novel agents since it lets you keep the efficacy without compromising and continuing to reduce toxicities."This automated system allows for reproducible quantification of metastases in bone scans and reliable interpatient and intrapatient comparison. It has been established as an objective measurement of treatment effects. Trials are ongoing that include validation against other clinically relevant outcome measures.
