Imagine a New Reading Workflow

Maximize the Impact of Imaging with More Efficient Reading Solutions

As patient populations increase and shift to more elderly age groups, referring clinicians are actively seeking new ways to improve outcomes while reducing care costs. How can you maximize the information your imaging provides to help referrers make better treatment decisions? Consider how capturing additional quantitative information may help improve communication with referring clinicians and lead to better patient outcomes.

Quantitation is Needed to Predict Outcomes

SUVmax is a Useful Statistic, but it has Known Limitations

Many factors can influence SUVmax, such as its high dependence on noise, scan duration, and other acquisition parameters. These factors lead to poor reproducibility, and for this reason, you should be reluctant to rely solely on SUVmax for predicting outcomes. Quantitative metrics like metabolic tumor volume and total lesion glycolysis have demonstrated advantages over SUVmax alone1 and should be considered for inclusion in your reading workflow.

Referring Physicians Require Actionable Insights

Radiologists can't report effectively with ambiguous information. Extract crucial information beyond SUVmax alone to inform more confident treatment decisions.

Conventional Quantitative Metrics have Known Limitations

Due to the metric's known limitations2, you will experience situations where SUVmax cannot provide the information referring physicians require.

Time is of the Essence

Since no reimbursement options currently exist for capturing additional quantitative information, you will need a way to incorporate this information without spending any extra time.
