Medical imaging machine receives FDA clearanceIntrinsic Medical Imaging, which specializes in medical imaging software, recently received FDA pre-market notification clearance for its IMI Spectrum 3D imaging workstation.

“Intrinsic provides revolutionary, advanced 3D visualization which could enable a virtual angioscopy of the inside of cardiac structures through a simple, noninvasive CT scan,” said Arie Blitz, director of the heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. “For example, we processed a patient’s standard 2D CT images using the IMI technology and saw thrombi in 3D previously undetected in 2D. This is amazing technology.”

The product uses innovative uncompressed rendering techniques to achieve results such as these, which IMI says will improve patient outcomes by reducing errors.

Breakthroughs in medical imaging technology are likely to have a significant impact on hospital supply chain management. To remain competitive, hospitals increasingly are required to purchase expensive imaging equipment such as PET and MRI scanner, according to a U.S. News report. Although this equipment is expensive, it could be a worthwhile procurement. Melanie Nallicheri, a healthcare management consultant quoted by the source, cautioned that hospitals that do not invest in these advanced pieces of equipment could lost "reputation and volume."
