Quantitative volumetric evaluation of functional response to treatment.
syngo.MR OncoCare1 is your new tool for advanced oncology reading, designed to positively address therapy benefit.
With its histogram analysis, back-mapping, and trending functionalities, syngo.MR OncoCare offers a solution for quantitative evaluation of functional lesion response to treatment. It has the potential to allow earlier assessment of treatment response, leading to treatment path optimization and savings of unnecessary treatment costs.
Features & Benefits
As extension of the MR Oncology workflow, syngo.MR OncoCare1 provides rich feature sets for histogram analysis and trending over multiple time points:
- VOI- and ROI-based histogram analysis
- Intuitive color definition for three histogram domains
- Savable presets for histogram analysis
- Back-mapping of histogram colors on the image of reference
- Export in .CSV format of pixel intensity values
- Trending plot
- Quantitative assessment of the functional behavior of lesions for earlier assessment of therapy benefit
- Improved communication towards referrers and oncologists with the back-mapping functionality
- Additional research possibilities with the export functionality
Examples for clinical application
Monitoring bone marrow metastases treatment
Histogram analysis of whole-body diffusion-weighted images and ADC maps has been documented to be a powerful tool to monitor response to treatment in skeletal therapy.
Earlier assessment of response to TACE therapy
Volumetric functional MR assessment is documented to predict TACE therapy response after one month2, where the currently available imaging criteria (morphology-based) assess therapy response after six months, earliest3.
The benefits are two-fold: Treatment path optimization and savings of unnecessary treatment costs.
