Dallas, USA, November 26, 2020. New data will be presented by Perspectum at this year’s RSNA meeting. 

Perspectum will be showcasing AI-powered whole-image quantitative liver fat measurement for hepatic fat without a biopsy. The fully automatic analysis excludes liver structures that can confound other ways of measuring liver fat and has been developed within Perspectum’s clinical analysis service to handle real data as taken in clinical practice. (Listen to the talk on December 1st: Bagur, A. T., et al. Automated Liver Segmentation with Vessel Exclusion in Proton Density Fat Fraction Maps)

Perspectum’s MRCP+ technology measures the 3D biliary tree within the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. This proprietary technology has been studied as a biomarker in patients with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC). Physicians caring for those with PSC need an objective, longitudinal measure of biliary tree health in order to titrate treatment. 

A third presentation demonstrates how to extend the utility of MRCP+ to patients for whom motion might be a problem. This new method would increase image quality, and efficiency.

Full details of posters and talks being presented:

Oral:
