Hermes Medical Solutions receives 510(k) FDA clearance for Voxel Dosimetry
Hermes Medical Solutions has received 510(k) FDA clearance for its Voxel DosimetryTM product. The product has previously been CE-marked.
Voxel DosimetryTM provides estimates (deterministic) of absorbed radiation dose at voxel level as a result of administrating one of the supported radionuclides and providing a 3-dimensional dose map.
Hermes Medical Solutions´ Voxel DosimetryTM supports the 7 most common isotopes; Ga68, I123, I131, In111, Lu177, Tc99m and Y90.
The Voxel DosimetryTM workflow consists of the following steps:
• SPECT/CT or PET/CT DICOM data loading from the data manager (e.g. PACS)
• Registration of different time-points to a common reference study
• Generation and integration of voxel-level time-activity curves
• Voxel-level absorbed dose calculation using a Monte Carlo method
• Saving of the absorbed dose map back to the data manager (e.g. PACS) in DICOM format
“This is an important step towards the holy grail in medical imaging, Theranostics”, says Hermes Medical Solutions´ CEO Tom Francke. “Voxel DosimetryTM is the most advanced dosimetry product on the market, which was also recognized by the FDA. It supports all the most commonly used isotopes. It is now both CE-marked and FDA-approved”.
