Software, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
Definition : Software designed to acquire, process, and archive data and images obtained during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies. This software usually works with MRI scanning systems and may also interact with devices used in the procedures, such as monitors, printers, contrast media injectors, and recorders. MRI study software is intended to work only with one or a few models of MRI scanning systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending of data to and from hospital information systems. The software may or may not be available separate from the MRI equipment and may be updated and/or upgraded (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated software is available for a variety of MRI studies; some software is also capable of processing spectrographic data. Dedicated MRI study software is available for particular studies, such as blood flow analysis and also for cardiac, prostatic, and breast image studies.
