QISS

A disruptive leap in non-contrast MR Angiography
Contattaci

 

Nel mondo, oltre 200 milioni di persone soffrono di malattia arteriosa periferica (PAD).1,2
La controindicazione all'impiego di mdc rende difficile la diagnosi in moltissimi pazienti.
Superate i limiti attuali e migliorate le capacità cliniche con QISS3, tecnica Angio-RM senza mdc completamente nuova.
QISS aiuta a migliorare la sicurezza e la compliance del paziente per ottenere più accuratezza4 e una migliore gestione della malattia, mantenendo la certezza diagnostica degli esami MRA periferici.


 

Caratteristiche e vantaggi

La pianificazione e l'esecuzione della CE-MRA richiede competenze di alto livello per prevenire l'In flow venoso e altri artefatti causati, per esempio, da un timing d'iniezione del mezzo di contrasto non ottimale.

Grazie all'esecuzione Set-n-go (Imposta e vai), "QISS provides an easy-to-handle approach for imaging peripheral arteries with little requirements for further adjustments".1 Inoltre QISS2 offre l'opportunità di ridurre di costi operativi anche di 180 dollari per paziente in quanto non si utilizzano consumabili, agenti di contasto e test di laboratorio (GFR).3

Set'n'Go workflow

Il pacchetto software per Angiografia MR periferica senza mdc è basato sull'imaging Quiescent Interval Single Shot.

  • ECG triggered
  • Tecnologia 2D non-sottrattiva affidabile
  • Esecuzione Set-n-go (software Dot aggiuntivo) per una facile applicazione
  • Esportazione di tutte le immagini in un'unica serie (vista combinata, simil-CT)

Uso clinico

Imaging Diabetics with MR

About 347 million people worldwide have diabetes.1 In many cases this leads to perihperal artery disease.

"The high prevalance of chronic renal impairment in diabetic patients with PAD and the need for high doses of gadolinium based contrast agents place them at risk for nephrogenic system fibrosis."2

QISS3 provides an accurate non-contrast alternative to CE-MRA for demonstrating clinically significant arterial disease in patients where contrast agents are contraindicated.2,4 Enhance clinical capabilities with access to latest clinical standards of care and improve patient safety with the reduced need for CE-MRA.
