Cardiac quantification software supplier Medis today released a new version of its QMass MR software. QMass MR 7.2 makes the analysis workflow faster and offers automatic scar tissue segmentation.
QMass MR is the Medis software solution for the quantitative analysis of cardiac MR. It enables clinicians, researchers and technicians to analyze global and regional cardiac function, scar tissue and viability, and cardiac function at various stress levels.
The new version features many shortcuts and interface improvements that make working with the software faster and more intuitive. Examples are scrolling through series in the Movie Tool and one-click selection of the ED or ES phase in the Study Matrix.
For clinicians or researchers performing cardiac MR scar tissue analysis, QMass MR 7.2 provides two major improvements.
First of all, scar tissue analysis has become significantly faster because of the introduction of automatic segmentation. While the analysis can still be monitored and modified at each of the four analysis steps, the automatic segmentation reduces manual editing to a minimum.
Secondly, the scar tissue analysis in QMass MR now features double thresholding. This makes it possible to differentiate the infarct core from the peri-infarct region, and quantify those regions.
