Release of MRIxViP V2.0 with Improved Patient Coverage

The new release of our MRIxViP exposure libraries greatly strengthens any MRI exposure related analysis. The combination of the new anatomical phantoms, simulated with all birdcage variations, and imaging positions leads to a massive increase of precomputed radiofrequency (RF)-induced electromagnetic field distributions comprising terabytes of data.

1903 MRIxViP visual web

The MRIxViP exposure libraries now include the four latest Virtual Population (ViP) models from IT’IS: in addition to the eight anatomical phantoms already included in the V1.0 library, we have now added the Korean female model Yoon-sun, and three morphed models to extend population coverage: a slimmer Fats (BMI 29, down from 36), and two heavier Ellas (BMI 26 and 30, up from 22). We have also updated the exposure data for Fats based on the updated Fats V3.2.

The additional ViP models make MRIxViP V2.0 even more representative of exposure in patients undergoing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam. In combination with IMAnalytics, a powerful software that allows fully automated Tier 3 analysis of RF-induced local power deposition at the electrodes of implantable devices, the extended library facilitates the standardized, effective and comprehensive evaluation of potential risks from exposure, e.g. in patients with active or passive implants.

We will to continue expand the library to increase patient coverage, with additional anatomical phantoms, relevant postures, and other configurations that will continuously increase the reliability of MRI related safety assessment.

Customers who purchased the full MRIxViP V1.0 together with a Service & Maintenance contract will receive the new version MRIxViP V2.0 shortly. No workflow changes are necessary!
