QRS is Expanding its Automatic Anatomy Recognition Software to Help Physicians Personalize Treatment Planning and Response Assessment for Cancer Patients.

Quantitative Radiology Solutions (QRS) was awarded a second STTR grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for development of software for automated PET/CT interpretation and reporting.

This grant will allow the company to extend the application of its Automatic Anatomy Recognition (AAR) software to automated disease burden estimation and standardized reporting on PET/CT images.

“I am very enthusiastic about the proposed solution from QRS for automated PET/CT interpretation and reporting, as it will improve the efficiency of PET/CT study interpretation by radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians, while simultaneously helping patients with cancer by optimizing individualized pre-treatment planning and response assessment,” commented Dr. Drew Torigian, Professor of Radiology at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. According to market research firm IMV, clinical scan volume for PET/CT has been growing at an annual rate of 6% since 2013 with oncology being the leading therapeutic area.
